My zucchini leaves are turning yellow and the young zucchini are dying before growing enough to harvest. We moved them to new soul because we had this problem last year.

It's difficult to diagnose the problem without seeing the plants or sharp photos.

Yellow leaves often indicate too much water or a nutrient deficiency. In the latter case, a soil test may be needed to find out what's lacking. Go here to learn more about this:

The earliest zucchini fruits often fail to develop because the plants are not mature enough to support them. When the plants are healthy, fruits develop normally a week or two later.

Disease or pests could also account for the problem but when they do other symptoms are usually present.
