Squash Blossom Not Yielding Fruit

Our garden is very healthy with large plants and vibrant blossoms across all of our vegetable plants. However, the squash is not yielding anything. The flower blooms and falls off after a few days leaving only a barren stem. Any suggestions as to why or what to do? We are in the very hot mid south, if that makes a difference.

This is typical behavior for a squash plant. They will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.
