Q.Spaghetti Squash Leaves Wilting

Zone Near Toledo Ohio | Anonymous added on August 15, 2021 | Answered

My spaghetti squash leaves turning yellow and wilting, new green leaves look healthy, but wilting during the day. Plant has been mulched with clean straw, and they have been watered regularly, and once a week with a 20-20-20 Miracle Grow type powdered fertilizer. 1 Tbs per gallon of water. No weeds near base of plant. Bare vine by base, but no rot. The set squash all look fine and seem to be growing well in spite of the wilting leaves. They look better in the morning, but not great, and are all wilted by evening. Any suggestions?

Without pictures, it would be hard to say. Knowing that you feed so often with a high potency fertilizer tells me that it is being drastically overfed, though. Feed as needed, to avoid overfertilization.
