Courgettes and Pickling gherkins

Could you please tell me why my courgettes are not growing as big as they should, they grow to a certain point and then go soft at the end please help ?

Also have you got a recipe for pickling gherkins, but in sweet vinegar please thank you very mucyh



I am guessing as I think there are some small varieties and they are supposed to be picked when they are little longer than a 6 inches.

Cougettes going soft on the blossom end probably didn't get pollinated. If bees are absent, you will have to pollinate them yourself.
