Crookneck fail

The crookneck squash I added to the bed on May 8 is dying.

The crookneck squash was bought to satisfy my craving for summer squash. Photo taken May 15.

The crookneck squash was actually two plants. Yesterday, the one on the right was down. Dead. That was it. So I cut it at the bottom of the stem. Then, today, this. Sigh.

I think the moral of this this story is don’t buy seedlings with two plants in a tiny 2″ pot. Thin early. I hope that’s the lesson here. Does any one have any other ideas?
