Potatoes and squash wilting

Zone Chino Valley, Az. zone 7 | Woodie added on May 25, 2016 | Answered

My potato plants were doing real well and then all of a sudden the leaves were turning black and dying just over night. Also, my yellow squash and zucchini. What's going on? Same with my beans. Thanks, Woodie H.
