Butternut Squash Plants
Q.

butternut squash leaves are turning yellow

Zone Bay Shore, NY | GreenGoddessGurl added on June 28, 2015 | Answered

I've been gardening for a few years, and I've never had this problem. My butternut squash leaves are turning yellow at the bottom of the plant, and they are getting brown spots too. The fruits are growing very nicely. I fertilize the plants once a week and water hasn't been a problem because of the rain we've been getting. What's wrong with my plants?

This is squash end rot, most likely due to the heavy rainfall.
