I was also fighting with my yellow squash rotting at the end this summer, they would get 3" - 4" long and start to go bad. My zucchini was right next to it and I got tons of them, no rot on any of them. I don't think it was a pollination problem since there was a bee nest just 20ft away from the garden again this year, and yep they were all over the garden. I also did hand pollination, so I am fairly sure that it wasn't a pollination issue.
My Zucchini didn't rot at all and they were in the same bed could it still be a calcium issue? I just found out a couple weeks ago that I have very high arsenic in my ground water, (thank goodness for the amount of rain this summer, I didn't have to water hardly at all) could it be that the yellow squash is more sensitive too (going to call it poisoning, not sure how else to explain it) poisoning?
