My Squash and pumpkin plants are growing really well but they seem to have so many flowers and small fruit on them that i can't see how they will all develop. Is it okay to trim some of them off and just leave 3 to 5 (for example) on each plant (maybe less on the pumpkin?). Also a few of the fruit have fallen off the squash is this a fertilisation issue or the plant naturally reducing quantites?



Thanks, That's really helpfull, they are starting to produce small fruit, so hopefullyI will get a few squash and a pumpkin or two in a couple of months.
