Zucchini produces both male and female flowers. The female ones are the only ones that set fruit. So you probably have a plant that is not yet ready to set the fruit...keep waiting and it should if it continues to thrive.
Here is a link to tell ya more.
I am guessing that with the tomatoes you will have to plant elsewhere...but hopefully someone will know more about that than I do. Ants... I hate 'em, but have no idean how to kill them.

This is only my second year with a garden and I am learning a little more each year. I have a few questions that I am really stumped by:
1. My zucchini plants are not producing fruit. THey are growing like crazy and flowering, but the flowers are not turning into fruit... Isn't that weird? Why are they doing that?
2. I have carpenter ants that have made a nest under one of my zucchini plants. It is so big that they have dug up some of the root! How can I kill them? Will cornmeal work? Could this be why they aren't producing?
3. My tomatoes got septoria leaf spot and I had to prune them completely Will they grow back or should I dig them up and replant tomatoes elsewhere?
Thank you for any help you can give me!
