|Hi again, I have 4 Honey Bear Squash plants, all of which have little squashes on them (2 or 3 each). The problem is, the baby squash are turning yellow and just falling off the plant when they get about an inch or two big. What could be causing this? Thanks!

|Aborting, most likely due to lack of pollination. You may have to hand pollinate. It is easy, but must be done early in the morning when the female flower opens. Just take a male flower, strip off the petals and smoosh the pistil on the female flower.|

|Do you have bees around? You really need them to pollinate those flowers or you will have to do it yourself.|
