yellow squash

Zone Trout, Louisiana | Anonymous added on May 5, 2017 | Answered

Our squash plants are only about 6-8 inches tall, but are already blooming small flowers and putting on tiny squash. Shouldn't they be larger before blooming? Should we remove these "premature" squash? What are we doing wrong?
