My squash started flowering in early June, over three weeks ago now, with 2-3 big beautiful yellow flowers constantly on every plant. Unfortunately, three weeks later, I still have not seen a single female flower: I go out to check every morning so that I can hand-pollinate if there is any sign of possible zucchinis showing up.
I know that the female flowers often lag behind the male, but three weeks seems kind of extreme for that. I've been assuming it's the weather doing it: it hasn't stopped raining pretty much all month, and there have only been 3-4 days of sun in the entire month of June.
I've been telling myself nature finds a way, and to be patient, but I'm starting to really worry about them now. Is there anything I can or should be doing to help them along? Is 3 weeks a reasonable time frame to wait for female flowers? Any help is appreciated.
