Q.Are My Squash And Zucchini Going To Flower Too Early?

Zone 15236 | ralph81 added on June 1, 2020 | Answered

I started 3 squash and 3 zucchini plants from seed, I started them April 18th, they sprouted about a week later, we ended up getting 2 cold weeks when I was planning to transplant, so I got them in the ground may 16th, I had them in solo cups and they were huge. Now A little over 2 weeks in the ground they have grown slightly, but are starting to flower. I’m worried that the plant started to flower in the cups because they spend 4 weeks in the cups. I’m wondering if I should get rid of these plants and start fresh from new seeds sown outdoors. This is my first time growing squash and zucchini, most pictures I see, the plants are 4 times the size of mine before they start to flower. The 3 pictures are the plant before I planted, the day I planted them another picture today. Any advice would be great!

This is normal behavior. Whether you keep the plants that you have, or start new ones, they will do this. Just care for them as they should be and they will continue on.
