I may just pull the zucchini up. I should have just planted it in the small raised bed I have it in, although it may have been ok if I had planted it on the west side of the bed instead of the east, as most of the sun is morning sun. It is shading out a basil and a cucumber, and it isn't producing, probably because of the borers.

Red about injecting the stems with BT, but I don't think I like zucchini well enough to go to that trouble. Maybe I'll try your suggestion next year, pdq, along with regular surface treatment with BT.

Cherry tomatoes coming in well now, and I have my first cucumber!

We had a few really lovely days with highs in the mid to upper 80's and night time lows down to 60 or the upper 50's. Today in the mid nineties and headed for the next several days into the high nineties. Humidity is not as high as is usual for this time of year, so it could be worse in terms of how it feels. Irrigating something or other every night.
