I have some yellow squash growing in my garden they are pretty big now. but when the veg. gets about as big as your finger then it starts to turn brown and die. I havent been able to get one veg.from them yet. Do you know why this could be happening? thank you

Sounds as though blossom-end rot is taking its toll on your squash. This condition is caused by wide fluctuations between wet and dry soil. To prevent the problem, water deeply and apply a thick mulch over the soil surface to keep evaporation at a minimum. Hope correcting the problem results in a bumper crop of squash for you!
