Squash fruit set, now what?
Ok, so this year my winter squash are shaping up real nice (knock on wood). Last year they were hit from beneath by moles and voles before most of them reached this point, and that was my first year growing them. The vines are huge, green, and have set many squash. So now do I need to do anything, like put something under the fruit the way I seem to need to do with melons? They seem to be rooting along the vines, too. I presume that is a good thing. And do they keep on the vine until frost or do they need to be removed once they are ripe then cured? Cheers!
