Zucchini Eaten by Groundhog

kiggy05 added on July 1, 2012 | Answered

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?

As long as the rest of the plant look fine and the roots are still intact, then it should be fine and continue to produce. You can remove the damaged leaves but treat the plant with neem oil to guard against pest or fungal problems.
