Zucchini Eaten By groundhog
The leaves on my zucchini were eaten by a groundhog. They were doing well and would probably have large fruit by now. The leaves are chewed up. Should I cut them off? Will the plant still produce?

You can remove the damaged leaves but treat the plant with neem oil to guard against pest or fungal problems.
