Gardening Puzzle

Hmmm…I wonder if someone out there can help me. My zucchini plants are starting to blossom, but there’s not one female flower among them. All males. I purchased the seeds from Vesey’s – they’re called Summer Squash Golden Dawn III – a hybrid yellow zucchini. Upon closer inspection I noticed that my winter squash (Bush Delicata) also only has male flowers at this point. I keep pinching them off, hoping that I’ll eventually get some female ones, but has anyone else had this problem before?

These plants are more than ready to be transplanted into a greenhouse, but as yet the fellow who is to build me one hasn’t shown up. He was supposed to start last week but I’ve not see or heard from him.
