short squash blossom tutorial

Found at the ol' veg-blog.

Along the squash-lines: My summer squash (growing in 2 large-ish pots) have just about died. I harvested one little guy several weeks ago and my mom attempted to pick another one last night, that turned out to be squishy and inedible. The leaves on each plant are half-dead and the whole thing droops. I wonder if this happened because a) I haven't fertilized and the soil is lacking nutrients? I tend to doubt this because I used good compost for the bulk of their pots. Or b) because the root growth is too extensive for the pots and they need larger pots? Or c)...?
