I am a new gardener and would like to see if it's normal for a squash plant that was planted a little over a month ago to still be basically the same size it was when we planted it? I feel like it should have grown a lot by now but, like I said, I'm new at this. Thanks for your help. ☺️

I would start again, from seed.
Serious waste of money buying those started plants... When growing large seeded plants, It's always best to direct sow the seed.

But... tell us... where did you purchase the plants, how large were they, and... Importantly... Did you remove them from the container they came in?
And... what kind of soil prep was done in the garden?

Thank you so much for your reply. We bought them at Home Depot because that is the only veggie they didn't have seeds for. They were approximately 5-6" tall and aren't busy bigger now. My husband used a combo of top soil, manure, and gardening soil. Lastly, I did remove the plant from container to plant it.

Thanks so much for help.

Welcome!

Can you add photos? Did you plant in a container?

Can you be more specific about the products you used?
