Last week, the question was: Is this a male or female squash blossom? How can you tell?
This is a female blossom. You can tell by the presence of the swollen yellow ovary at the base of the flower. That is what will be harvested. The flower will fall off and if pollination was successful, the ovary will grow to what we recognize as a squash. If pollination was unsuccessful, it will not grow any larger. Instead it will shrivel up and rot.
Here is this week’s question: What is the white stuff on these cucumber leaves?
