Answer: I guess the only way to keep deer from eating your bird food is to hang your feeder higher up - where the deer cannot reach it. Birds won't mind feeding from a high perch. Zucchini that turns yellow usually indicates it is overmature. Try harvesting when the squash are less than 7 inches in length. The more you harvest, the more squash your plant will produce. If you want to hand pollinate your squash, look for male blossoms (they have a straight stem directly behind the petals) and brush the insides of the male flower into the female flower (has a slight swelling directly behind the flower petals). Good luck with your zucchini!
