I have zucchini plants planted in a large pot. I'm getting some good zucchini, but lots of them blossom, grow about 3 oe 4 inches and turn yellow and sick. What am I doing wrong?

I don't think you're doing anything wrong. Fruit that shrivels up when only a few inches long indicates a pollination problem. It simply means that no insects visited the male flowers and then the female flowers. This sometimes happens because of cool weather. In any event, as long as you're getting zucchini, your plants are healthy. Enjoy!
