Zucchini Puzzle

Last week at Farmer’s Market a lady in a Hawaiian shirt with a matching visor came up and began asking me questions about her zucchini plants. It was obvious she knew more about them than I did—She knew they had a male and a female flower. She knew that if they were not producing fruit, she may need to hand pollinate them. But what she didn’t know was why with all this knowledge she still did not have zucchini on her zucchini plants.

All I could respond was that I wished The Farmer was here—at Farmer’s Market. He is just the smartest man about plants that I know! And then the surge of new veggie lovers crowed our table and the lady in the Hawaiian shirt with the matching visor and I parted without even sharing a name.

This post is for that woman with a heart-felt thank you for asking the question! I puzzled over her dilemma all week, but it wasn’t until today that I could get to the computer to look for some answers…for the rest of the story go to http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com, Gardening Posts.
