Looks like no tomatillos and no squash this season.
I will try replanting from Burpee, but our growing
season is so short and I have already lost a month
(zone 6c).
I would say to stay away form these folks:

I am shocked when a zuck seed does not sprout. These guys must be a bunch of real screw ups!

I had a very strange experience with tomatillos (first time I've planted them). I planted 4 pots indoors, and only one had sprouts. A couple weeks later I put that tray on the porch so the plants could adjust before I found time to set them in the ground. In a couple days, the other 3 pots had plants.
Very strange.

Tomatillos even survive my Black Thumb! I have had them reseed for two years after I grow them. All over the place -- not where I want them though.
Last year's failed as I was doing an experiment with them. This year was just bad seeds.
I have new squash and tomatillos seeds coming from Burpee.

IMPORTANT: tomatillos do not self pollinate. To get any fruit, you have to have two or more plants. And put them close enough together so they can pollinate each other. I put mine two feed apart. You will also notice that they will branch into each other. I presume it is for pollination.
