Hi Michael. I have a question for you. I googled this and researched it but I can't seem to find this problem anywhere. I just picked my first zucchini squash (I was so proud of myself for actually growing it myself). Low and behold, it's covered in holes. Very small holes and there was a tiny lime green worm on the fruit coming out of one of the holes. Also, the fruit had a white, clumpy substance on it, as well as the vine. I can't find anything about holes in the fruit-just vines and leaves. Any ideas? Thanks so much.

jamie, that's the &# pickleworm. you can control for it with BT and some other things, but i don't spray my garden... if you search in this blog for pickleworm, you can see what i've done in the past... paper bags work. or you can just get rid of the worm by soaking the cuke/squash in a bucket of water (works well!)... or you can just yank the crop and grow something more suited to summers in florida...
