What's wrong with my zuchinni and pea pods?

Let me start by saying I am new to gardening. I have planting a raised garden with zuchinni, snap peas, squash, tomatoes, cukes, peppers and some herbs. It appears that my snap peas and zuchinni are starting to die. I should also add that the garden does have a drip system but gets most of its water from my sprinkler system. Any ideas?

Hi Djamie,

It's a bit late for this but I think your peas were done for the season. They don't like hot weather.

Your zuchinni appears to have one of the mosaic viruses. These viruses are often spread by insects such as aphids and thrips. Take a look here to see if you can id what happened.
