Q.summer squash

Zone 6 | hankster added on July 13, 2012 | Answered

I planted three types of squash this year. My problem is all I get is flowers and no squash. This happened last year as well. The stems look like they’re chopped off but this happens only on a few plants. I don’t see any bugs on the plants and the plants look healthy.

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