On Christmas Day I was talking with Mum about male and female zucchini flowers. My daughter overheard and was asking what we meant. I took her to the garden bed and showed her the difference. She was amazed! It's funny isn't it? I don't even think about the miracle of male and female flowers any more so it was nice to look at the flowers through her eyes.
For others out there who may not know how to fertilise their zucchinis, the flower below is a male flower.
