Thinning squash stem

animaldrjJune 22, 2010

I am new to growing squash and have a small area of butternut, acorn and pumpkins. The stems of three of my plants have become very thin and seem to thin to transport nutrients to the rest of the plant, but the plants are doing fine. They don't seem to be growing as well as my butternut squash, but still producing new leaves. Any ideas?

Are they receiving full sun? Any chance of seeing a photo?
