My squash and cucumber plants are thriving and growing larger every day with multiple blooms, but the actual squash will only grow to about two inches and then starts turning brown on the tips before dying. My cucumbers only get to about an inch and then start to shrivel up and die. Everything else in the garden is doing great. What could be the problem?
