I have planted my first garden this year and so far everything seems to be doing good. I have recently noticed that my Okra and Zucchini plants are turning a yellowish and brown color. The Zucchini leaves feel dry. My question is, could it be that I am watering too much? I have paid attention and used Sevin Dust to keep away the pests, and I check the garden every day. Any comments would be greatly apperciated.

It may be that you are not watering enough. Unless they are in standing water, it is hard to give them too much water. The plants need at least 2-3 inches of water, including rainfall, a week. Water from below, instead of above, if you can to minimize evaporation.
