I have a weird situation thisI have a weird situation this year...my yellow crookneck squash have a ton of immature fruit on them, but they only mature into tiny 3" fruit. They are bumpy, deep yellow, and tasty - definately not unpollinated - but tiny! It's a new garden plot and it has a cover crop of clover. Is my soil deficient? Is the clover robbing the plants of something they need? The plants are really healthy looking so i don't think i'm overwatering. The soil we got for it was a really gorgeous decomosed granite that we harvested out of a mesquite stand and we've been amending it as we go, but it's the first season with this soil so there hasn't been a heck of a lot of organic matter in it yet. Everything else we've planted in this soil is doing great.
