  • Hello everybody In today's episode we will see how to grow

  • Zucchini How to harvest it and I'll also throw in a

  • nice zucchini recipe for you So to start with, here are some interesting

  • facts about Zucchini So the container I recommend for growing zucchini

  • is a 16'' wide container which is 15'' tall And you can see the video description for

  • the product that I generally use for all my vegetable container gardening

  • And you'll be surprised that it doesn't really cost much to grow in these 16'' containers

  • The Zucchini we will be planting today is the dark green zucchini

  • Zucchini grows best when it is sowed directly I do not recommend transplanting zucchinis

  • Because they are very fragile plants And you have to be very very careful if you

  • are transplanting zucchinis I just prefer to sow them in the ground directly

  • And all you need to do is take the seeds and space them a little apart

  • You can grow about two zucchinis in a container of this size

  • And then you can bury them just about the size of the seed itself, not too much

  • I've experimented with a lot of potting mixes and I finally found one that is really good

  • value for money Its available at most home improvement and

  • garden stores And its called Kellogg Patio Plus which is

  • a great mix with great ingredients So after planting the seeds I usually label

  • and add a date to all the plants that I have planted

  • So I know what's growing where And also make sure you water the plants well

  • When the plants are at the seed stage or the seedling stage

  • You need to maintain constant moisture which is very important for the seeds not to dry

  • out So in a very short time you will see the seeds

  • have germinated And there are two seeds which made it

  • Which is about the right thing for this sized container

  • In the next few days, you're going to see few leaves come out and this is the time you

  • need to consider adding fertilizers You can go organic and add a Fish/Seaweed

  • fertilizer Or you can use one of those water soluble

  • fertilizers Which you just mix in water and add to the

  • zucchini plants The zucchini plant will start flowing very

  • soon At this stage you want to start feeding your

  • zucchini plants a balanced fertilizer every 3 weeks

  • If you feed too much Nitrogen to the zucchini at this stage, its going to produce a lot

  • of leaves but very less zucchini And also note that the zucchini plant needs

  • a lot of water at this stage And the zucchini plant has different male

  • and female flowers So here you can see both the male and female

  • flowers Now the pollination is usually done by bees

  • But if you don't see zucchini forming on your plants, you need to pollinate them yourself

  • Just take a brush and then take some pollen from the male flower

  • And then just sprinkle it on to the female flower

  • And it will develop into a fruit

  • So one of the most common pests on the zucchini plant are aphids

  • These are black aphids that you can see on the zucchini plant

  • And today I'm going to show you an organic way to get rid of them

  • And this is as organic as it can get I am going to show you how to get rid of aphids

  • using Water! Yes you heard it right

  • All you need is a garden hose with shower or a jet spray

  • And water is all you need to get rid of these aphids

  • And I'll show you how

  • Just like that Just spray away those aphids

  • And they'll be gone You can also hold them while you're washing

  • So you get more control You can get rid of all your aphids this way

  • And don't worry about all the water that goes to the zucchini plants

  • They need all that water! So our zucchini plant has now started forming

  • nice squash I can see several here

  • Two of them right there And zucchinis must be harvested when they

  • are tender They will get very large but they will also

  • get very fibrous So you need to make sure you harvest them

  • at the right time Now this zucchini plant is actually pretty

  • big So the squash that it produces will also be

  • big So I'm going to wait just a couple of more

  • days To harvest this zucchini

  • Now remember that when the zucchini has started forming squash

  • It needs a lot of water Most of the zucchini squash is comprised of

  • water So you need to make sure you water the plant

  • thoroughly and deeply Otherwise your fruits are not going to form

  • So finally it looks like its time to harvest the zucchini

  • They look pretty well formed And I do not want to wait till it becomes

  • fibrous So I'm going to go ahead and harvest these

  • two zucchinis So to harvest the zucchini I'm going to use

  • a set of pruners Just make sure you make a clean cut

  • There we go! That looks pretty good

  • Nice, dark colored Its going to be a little light colored on

  • the other side where it doesn't get a lot of sun

  • And let's go ahead and harvest the other one Zucchini flowers are also edible by the way

  • They are actually a delicacy because you can't buy them in the market

  • And here is our second zucchini And that looks pretty good!

  • I'm going to show you two ways to harvest zucchini

  • The first way is to just hold the zucchini and give it a nice twist

  • Just like that And it comes off right away

  • And the other way of course is to use scissors or pruners

  • And make a clean cut And that's another way to harvest your zucchini

  • So I'll see you soon in another episode of California Gardening

  • Until then...Happy Gardening!
