Summer Squash

Anonymous added on July 6, 2015 | Answered

I have a yellow and acorn squash plant growing in my garden. When the vegetable starts to grow, within a couple of days they shrivel up. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. Thanks for you help.

It sounds like you are having pollination issues. When the flowers are not properly pollinated, the plant will reject the fruit while they are just a few inches long. You may need to hand pollinate. This article will help:
