YAY! You did it!

Now tell us more:

I can see your plants are in containers. What did you fill the containers with?
How do you water? When do you water? What kind of light are they getting? Did you fertilize? What's the weather been like?

Can you post a photo of the entire container?

They're too cold! Zucchini won't be happy until the temperatures are in the 70's at least.

Why are you watering if has been raining all month? Your plants are drowning. Quite watering until the soil dries out about an inch from the top. Even then, don't water if the rains water for you. Like Daisyl asked, more information is absolutely necessary to help. Good luck.
