This is my first time to grow summer squash. I have a bunch of female flowers on my plant. They have been there for about 4 days. They do not seem to be growing. What should I do for them, as the plant itself looks very healthy?

Sometimes you will have numerous male flowers that suddenly drop off and don’t give fruit. However, you could also consider hand pollinating plants if fruiting still doesn’t seem to be taking place once females come in, as in your case. Here is an article that you may find helpful: [1]
