This is my first attempt at butternut squash, and the female flowers aren't opening at all. The vines are 8 feet long, have plenty of male flowers (opening), but that's it. The tiny flowers are there, just don't open. Why is this?
Yeah, just give it time. They start out small, but once they get going, you'll have squash coming out of your ears.DoubleDogFarm wrote:Maybe you should try whispering sweet nothings.
I'm thinking it's one those give it more time. I keep reading that most squashes produce male flowers first.
