So I just moved from south Florida to center am Florida 8 months ago. I just started some yellow crook neck squash plants about 6 weeks ago. They were doing pretty good and growing really quick. Now there growth is slowing in some of them. The leaves are turning yellow, and we had a stretch with not a lot of rain but the last few days have had a lot of down pours. I had vine borers in south Florida but it wasn't until they were around ready to start producing fruit. They are still growing leaves and what not but it's the yellowing so early on that has me concerned. They are planted in an area that is covered with mulch. I started them from seed in a paper towel and then put the sprouts in sim jiffy soil pellets and let them grow there until there first leaves appeared and then put them in a ground. So what do you think is going on with my squash? Is there anyway to get them healthier?

yellowing leaves is usually a nutrient deficiency. Generally nitrogen. Have they had any fertilizer?

Then again, a picture would help.

Also, welcome!
