I need help with my yellow squash!

I went out to look at my plants today and I noticed that my nice yellow squash are aborting. They are quite small. They were half brown on the blossom end and still yellow on the other half. Can they get BER? I had recently watered them and a day or so later we got a 1/2 inch of rain. Overwatered? They were doing so nicely. I could almost cry! Maggie

They probably just didn't get pollinated. Many times squash plants will produce either all male blossoms or all female blossoms for a week of two before they produce both. Once they get their act together you should begin to get squash.
