Some of the blossoms on my zucchini have fallen off and the stem looks like they have been cut. My garden is fenced in. Don't ever remember this happening before. Any help would be appreciated. I have lots of blossoms and am looking forward to a feast. Marva

Do you have bunnies in the area? When they munch the end of the stem looks like it has been cut with a knife. If so, you may need to fence your garden to keep them out. Use chicken wire, burying it 6" into the ground and keep it 2 1/2 feet high. This will keep the critters out. Best wishes with your zucchini!
