Moving average on every day, with data which has day gaps

I have a table with several columns. One column is the date. Another column is the plant. Another column is the daily production. I want to plot the 10-day moving average of the daily production for a specific plant that the user can select, factoring in zero daily production for days when the plant did not produce. If the plant did not produce on a particular day, there is no record of production (data will not appear with zeros in my data set). I want the horizontal axis of my chart to show me all the days of the year. What is a good way to achieve this goal?

 

My attempt was to create a measure

Measure = calculate(sum(production,DATESINPERIOD(dates,LASTDATE(dates,-10,DAY))/10

 

That seems to return the correct moving average on the days when the plant produced something, but it only returns values on the days when the plant produced, whereas I want the measure to be calculated on every single day, factoring in zeros for days when there are no records of production for the plant. I have tried changing continuous/categorical x-axis but that does not fix it.
