I'm having some stubborn squash issues too. Where do you live? Has it been super hot for you too? I think that has been part of it. They need a LOT more water than my other plants need. Also, with more water means more fertilizer. I pushed up the amount of water and that helped, but not enough. I'm going to increase the fertilizer and see what that does too. Do you have pictures?

Do you have Squash bugs?

Squash do need a lot of water but generally they should be easy plants.
