Zucchini and Pumpkin Growing Problems

I have planted zucchini, yellow squash, mini pumpkins, and gourds. The plants came up and were doing beautifully until a few weeks ago when the leaves started to wilt, as well as the flower stems, and some of the bottom leaves are turning yellow. I have not seen any kind of insects on them. We have had a lot of rain with some cool temperatures, but now it has been pretty hot. We had a similar problem with the plants last year too. Can you help?
