Zucchini Questions

agoldman | Jun 18, 2009 06:03 AM

I've heard that zucchini is one of the easiest vegetables to grow, but this is my first time with it and I have some (very) basic questions. I have a healthy-looking plant with a few flowers on it, but the blossoms just drop off their stems after a while. Is this normal (in mid-June in Virginia)? Also, I'd like to keep some of the blossoms to eat - what is the best way to harvest them, and will it keep fruit from growing?

Thanks for your help!
