Crooked Neck Squash Females not opening flowers before withering
I have had a plant twice now make two female baby squashes but never open up the flower and then start to wither, the flower never even made it to the orange color, yet the baby fruit was about an inch and a half long. I looked inside the flower this time and the Stigma was brown and kinda rotted looking. Is there any suggestions on what's going on and how I can get these things to produce. Things were going pretty well until now, I was hand pollinating because lack of bees in the area...Thanks!
