We are having a total nightmare with our squash this year, and cannot work out why. Any thought great fully recieved. We grew a really nice selection of squash plants in spring;
and were ready to plant them out by late June. Well the results have been rubbish. The plants have basically failed to thrive, turned yellow and got eaten by slugs. Fearing it was something to do with our soil, we have resorted to starting a few ‘reserves’ off in grow bags as squash is a really big part of our summer produce and we are already feeling the gap.
Asks you can see from the photo, there are a couple of semi decent ones, but as yet no sign of any fruit. We are keeping them well watered but are getting close to giving up on them. 😦
