Crazy Conure is new to gardening, and eager and exited.How many times I have seen people kill plants by too much TLC I can't count but this is something I can't quite explain. Fretting about the first squash blossom not setting fruit is bordering on the ridiculous. Most squash produce so much by the end of the season that your friends run when they see you coming trying to get rid of your excess fruits. Don't worry. You will end up with more blooms of both sexes than you will know what to do with
Take it easy, friend. It'll happen.You're right, chuck. I checked this morning and it was starting to turn brown on the edges. I felt a little bad. Also, all the male flowers (the closed ones) shriveled up. I didn't touch them. Was there anything that triggered this? I feel like poop.
It just happens sometimes, I don't know why. But don't worry, it is still early for squash, especially winter squash like butternut. Direct your energy to keeping your plants free from mildew and fungus. With all this rain everyone is having it might be a difficult year.You're right, chuck. I checked this morning and it was starting to turn brown on the edges. I felt a little bad. Also, all the male flowers (the closed ones) shriveled up. I didn't touch them.
