Two tomato plants

Bought the same day

Planted the same day, the same way

One thriving, the other dying

Why? Why? Why?

No matter what we do sometimes, plants can just go to the bad for no apparent reason. If it doesn't perk up soon, replant.

Possibly not enough soil in the planting pocket and the straw is composting too close to the roots?

I have one bale with squash (summer, diferent varieties, planted from seed) that has me puzzled. One end has a very happy plant, but the size decreases towrds the other end. The last seeds never even germinated, but were the same as the first, happy bunch. No clue as to why :(
