Why are almost mature squash shrivelling up?
Thank you all for a wonderful site & for the time spent answering & making it all work. I have yellow summer squash that are shriveling up just before maturing (around 6"-8" long). Soil is damp - not soaked, bug free for the most art, ends are not rotting as I've seen w/BER, not sure about pollination. Any ideas of what I'm overlooking or missing? Thanks
This is generally a pollination problem. Short of importing a beehive to your garden, you might want to try pollinating yourself: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/pollinate-squash-by-hand.htm
