Is the zucchini ready to be picked?
This is my first time growing zucchini. I am kind of confused by the whole process. I am pretty sure that there were no male flowers around when this zucchini started to grow, so I don't know how it got pollinated. Is it possible that it didn't and it still grew? Is the fruit still edible? Or did it have to get pollinated to get to this stage? Also...is it ready for me to pick it? Its shape is kind of funny. Lastly, some of the leaves of my plant are turning yellow. I am assuming its lack of nutrition so I fertilized. Should I do anything else?
Thank you in advanced!!!
