yellow summer squash problem

Squashes

Well, I’m starting to be concerned about my squash. They are very pretty, but no squash. They started blooming July 2. That’s 3 1/2 weeks ago! It seems like along time to wait with no sign of fruits. I did Google the delay and it seems unusual. The female flowers should show up 3-7 days after the males. A delay means the plants are stressed. Oh well. I’m not sure why. One site said low fruiting could be due to nutrient wash-out from excessive rain. We certainly have had excessive rain. I suppose I’ll add some more fertilizer. And some extra phosphate. Can’t hurt. Bother.
