Zucchini ... when is it 'done'
How do I know when my summer zucchini plant is done? I am in zone 9 SoCal where I'm told our growing season is extended. I should mention this is my first vegetable garden.
I was about to pull the plant because it seemed to have stopped sending blossoms and the few I'd seen were only male. Now I've got a few females that should open in the next couple of days, but still wondering... is the lack of blossoms what tips you off to when it is time to pull the plant? Or is it just a personal thing (as in, you want to move on to something new in the spot where the squash was).
How do you know? Thanks in advance for your insights.
