Ooze from flower end of pumpkin

nuckphoto(6)August 1, 2010

I don't have a veggie garden but I'm trying to grow a couple of pumpkins for Halloween. I have two plants growing and a number of pumpkins starting but so far the first two (tennis ball size) have starting oozing a liquid from the flower end (dead flower is still attached) and the pumpkins are starting to turn yellow. I have had problems with squash bugs.

Any help? Would pix help? How to post pix?

Thank you.

perhaps the female flower was not pollinated?so as soon as you see male flowers and female flowers go out and use a small paint brush and pollinate the female with the pollen from the male flower.
