Will my storm-damaged zucchini plant send out a side shoot?

Asked July 10, 2015, 10:42 AM EDT

I have a zucchini plant that has been doing well but the top of the vine snapped during a recent thunderstorm. It broke completely in half and the top had started wilting by the time I came home and found it. My question is: will the plant send out a side shoot? Or should I just pull it up and put something else in there?

It will definitely keep growing, it will just take a while longer to fruit.
