Why is my summer squash shriveling up before it is fully done? I have planted a yellow squash in a very big water trough. The leaves are very big and I have many squash flowers. Before they become fully yellow, they shrivel up and start to wither. They still have green on the bottom of the squash. We water them at least twice a day because of the hot weather. I live in San Antonio, TX. I have zucchini growing near them but not overcrowding. Can you help me with this problem?
I was wondering if it was okay to pick them when the flowers have fully bloomed on the veggie? Also, even if they are not 10-12 in. (but more like 5-8 in. ) and they seem to be ripe, do I pick them and let the season progress and maybe get bigger veggies?
After ten days or so, my summer squash was no more than about 3-4 inches long and then began turning hard and bumpy. I would appreciate it if you could tell me what caused this (so that I can avoid it next year) and what I can do to stop it this year.
My squash plants are beautiful but once the little squash comes on the bloom, the squash wilts and does not grow. What is my problem?
The plants are growing and the flowers are large but then immediately die off. I live in Las Vegas (Zone 11), so watering is an everyday thing. I have fertilized but nothing helped.
My summer squash leaves are curling upward. They are blooming but not producing.
My eastern Massachusetts area has had a lot of rain. We got control of slugs, but now I see fuzzy areas growing on leaves of the summer squash. How can I find out what it is?
