zucchini not getting more than 2 inches

Asked June 26, 2018, 8:59 AM EDT

theses zucchini are not getting bigger than 2 inches. Normally I would let the fruit set and if I walked away it would grow to the size of a baseball bat. The zucchini I have are typical home depot starts no exotic cultivar. I tried to let them mature longer on the pant but the not change in size even after a few days

It has been wet and we have not had a lot of sun. Summer squash is a warm season plant and will not put out good growth until we have some warm soil and air temperatures. Make sure the plants are in full sun. Give it some time. Here is our profile on summer squash. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/plants/summer-squash
