Not sure if this is nitrogen deficiency? Or some type of disease It just started to produce fruit.
What you guys think?
And I dont ever remember my zuchinnis standing up tall like this? Is this normal? It seemed like a good thing.

They may just be ageing.
Take those lower leaves off; it'll improve air circulation and chlorotic leaves are little or no use to you anyway.
I grow bush courgettes and it's quite normal.

This afternoon I checkednon mybplants andbthey wrre wilted horribly. I forgot to water them yeatersay and the day before I didnt water because it rained very hard. So not sure hownmuch water they actually got. I havent been watering as regularly necause my hose bursted last week. I got a brand new one coming in tonight.
But im thinking thebyellowing may have been a firat sign of needing water. But yet it couldnbe the aging considering I never cut any leavea off my the plant yet.

Put your finger down in the soil and check. They grow fast and pass by fast in sections. You should also have new growth. They move along the ground like a walking tree.

The yellowing could be overwatering a bit. Zucchini usually like a deep watering once a week and I’m zone 8b with 100+ temps. If the plant wilts in the day that’s totally normal. Have you fed them anything yet and what’s your soil conditions?
