Plants are large with large leaves and blooms near base of plant, but no squash or zucchini have appeared. Is this normal and how long does it take for the vegetable to appear? We water often, every other day, especially since outdoor temp is getting hot, and we have fertilized at least twice. I have pinched off leaves that look unhealthy.

Frtom the time of bloom to vegetable is usually 2 weeks for the budding of the vegetable.  But thios depends on both the plant and the soil conditions.  You can speed up the process a tad by removing some of the leaves. -Birdy

Squash plants have male and female flowers. The male flowers bloom first and do not produce fruit.  The female flowers will have a tiny squash behind the blossom which will grow after it is pollinated.  The male flowers do NOT have a small squash behind the blossom.
