Why do I not have any female plants to pollinate the male plant? Also, how can I do something about it?

Thank you,

Squash plants typically produce both male and female flowers on the same plant, but they often produce only male flowers initially for several weeks before the female flowers appear. The male flowers will pollinate the female flowers.

The female flowers will probably appear soon. Here's how to recognize the females when they appear: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/female-male-squash-blossoms.htm
