My squash plants, started from seed, were looking really good after being transferred to the well fertilized plot for one week. Now I see that the leaves are a bit yellow. I was hopeful that this was the year that I would finally be able to grow zucchini ! Please advise. Also, is there a preventative insecticide (hopefully natural) that I should put on the plants? Thanks
