Anemic Squash Leaf Color

meatn3 | May 27, 2011 09:15 AM

The rest of my garden is looking great (knock on wood), but the straight neck yellow squash transplants have the lightest yellow/green foliage.

I planted them over a month ago and have kept them well watered, so I don't think they were stressed.
II have new raised beds, so they are in the same soil mix as everything else.

They have been producing new growth, but have only doubled in size. Older leaves are lighter than the newer ones, but the new ones aren't exactly vibrant.

Any ideas from the Chow Collective?

Thanks.

(I'm a very good planter, it's the rest that becomes iffy.)
