What my hand is attempting to highlight here is the disappearance of my blossoms from the end of the squash stalks (say "squash stalks" ten times fast!). My "Garden Problem Solver" reference book says that it was probably the male blossoms that fell, and that I have to wait for the "more bulbous" female ones to come along. But what will the ladies do if the men have all died off? And why are they dying? The same thing appears to have happened to some of my tomato blossoms.
