: If anyone can help with any of these issues please do so, any advice will be greatly appreciated.
: 1. My Zuccini plants look great, there huge, there are blossoms galore, both male and female. I got about three or four healthy squash off of them at the very beginning, now my squash start out looking good when the blossom first appears. The squash will grow to about 3 to 4 inches long and only about as big around as my index finger, then the squash starts to wilt and turn yellow. The fruit never matures. Any ideas???
: 2. My bell pepper plants also look very good, nice and bushy, lots of blossoms, out of 6 plants I only have one pepper growing.
: 3. My tomatos also look great. plants are tall and bushy. they have grown up through the cages bigger than they ever have. All of a sudden the leaves at the bottom of the plants are turning yellow, they have black spots on them and it seems to be gradually moving up the vines toward the top the tomatos still look good and seem to be growing. I haven't gotten any ripe ones as of yet. HELP
