I have two cucuzzi squash plants, they are over 10 feet tall, many flowers but no fruit, the flowers at the end of the long stems turn brown, die, and fall off, any ideas? Thanks.

The flowers will do that if they are not pollinated. You can hand pollinate by gently applying the male flower to the center of the female flower, assuring good contact. Sometimes the use of pesticides will reduce the number of pollinators available.
