You are over watering your plants. Normally you should water this type of plant once every other day. Otherwise, it gets too much water and the zucchini will turn yellow and fall off the plant. Zucchini is a plant that has a lot of water in the vegetable so you need to cut back on watering this so much.

Also, if you are watering the top of the plant this isn't good either. You should only be watering the ground and not getting the vegetable wet on the plant.
