The lower leaves on my squash plants, (winter squash, zucchini, summer) are turning yellow. Does anyone have any experience with gardening that could tell me if this is a water issue or a nutrient shortage or excess? I'm desperate! Thanks so much.

Too much water, especially in cool weather, is supposed to cause yellow leaves. You might try getting your squashes off the ground by putting them up on flower pots, that works for watermelons. (07/02/2007)
Well I'm in NH and have the same problem. I believe it's a combo of bugs and cool dampness. We've been cold and wet for a long time! (07/12/2007)
Same problem. Put them in the garden too soon. Been really rainy and cool this May. Cut off the yellow and hope for some sunny warm days. (05/23/2008)
