I am having trouble with summer squash, yellow. The leaves are big and they are producing but the small squash are really soft on the end.

also, soft ended squash can mean too much water or not enough water and nutrients. alternate ways of not wateing to watering and nutrients. note any changes.
the type of soil and underwatering can be the cause. squash tend to enjoy partly clay sand soil with plenty of nutrients. try encorporating compost, manure, and potting soil in around the squash. keep watered well. remmember, it may take up to 3 weeks before you'll see any changes.
as far as soft ended squash, this may have to do with the soil type completly. again, do as above and see if anything happens. good luck.
