Pollinating squash/female flowers not opening
I have 4 squash plants; 2 spaghetti and 2 zucchini. It has taken forever for the female flowers to come up, and now they are not opening and just dying. I recently pried open one of the female flowers and pollinated it myself with one of the male flowers, but I am afraid that prying the flower open damaged it, or it wasn't ready yet. But otherwise they just die!
