They had eaten all of the new growth blossoms and I thought this one was spared.. NOT. Couldn't find the Diatomaceous at Home Depo you recommended

Further inspecting my zucchini leaves found this as well. Is it safe to say hornworm just hatched

Found underneath one of my zucchini leaves. Are these hornworm eggs?

So I had three zucchini growing and the one at bottom of picture started to shrivel away. Not sure if you can see the one on top of picture seems to be growing well. What went wrong? Is it because I have it in a container???

Just started getting signs of a female flower. I have learned that this plant gives off male and female flowers. You can tell female flower because that have a miniature looking zucchini right under flower. If not pollinated both flower and miniature fruit will drop. Male flowers continue to come put to insure there is one for a female. If no female is pollinated the male just drops off
