ok...so i've been growing my butternut squash for who knows how long...it's grown quite big, and flowers have bud (which means it should bring forth fruit soon!!!!). but NOOOOOOOOO....no fruit for me!
I DO see little fruit growing from the base of the flower, however after a couple a few days or weeks, the flower falls off, and the little fruit is rotting off...it's pissing me off...they're not growing to butternut squash!!! THEY KEEP ON DYING!!! and now...my leaves on the plant are starting to grow this white mold on there, so i've been pruning the leaves (or should i let them mold away and die?), but i was scared the mold would spread to the whole plant, which is why i pruned them. am i doing the right thing?!?! what am i doing wrong?!!? I WANT SQUASH DAMMIT!!! I want it before winter comes and freezes my plant dead!!!
