So this year I attempted container gardening on my balcony (west facing). I have zucchini started from seed in pots and in a raised bed. They started well (I guess) - lots of big leaves and then eventually little inch long zuccs with flowers on the ends (which withered away). The potted plants got them first. I thought I was in the clear and started fantasizing about having so much zucchini that I leave it on the neighbor's doorstep (like the abundance you here about when people grow zucchini). But the fruit hasn't gotten any bigger! And now I have blossoms on long stems that are NOT little baby zucchinis. And some of the leaves are starting to look a little weak. Did I do something wrong? I had gotten books and looked on the internet, and i don't THINK I saw anything about pruning, but I have a feeling I should have pinched off those flowers.
