squash leaves turning yellow.

I am growing squash in a container and in the ground. The plants in the ground are doing really well, they have bloomed and have several baby squash that have recently started growing. The plant in the container is not looking so hot. I used the same soil for all of the plants so I don't know what the problem is. The plants in the container are turning yellow and brown on the edge of the leaves. Any advice would be appreciated!

Over-watering of squash plants will cause the leaves to display the exact symptoms described in your post. Especially if the drainage characteristics of the container media is less than ideal....

I vote for overwatering as well... you can't really use the same soil for in ground as in container.

RE: squash leaves turning yellow.

We are having the same problem with squash leaves turning yellow. Planted in a half wine barrel. Getting drip irrigation one gallon of water every other day. Sonoma County California 90 degree days with low humidity and 50 degree nights.
