When are acorn squash ready?
I have about a softball size acorn squash on the vine. How do I know when it's ready to pick? I've never grown these before. It's light green. Does it turn dark green while on the vine, or does it do that when you pick it?
While I'm at it, same goes for butternut. I have really small green ones. Do they turn that yellow-tan color on the vine? and that how I know when it's ready?
Thanks!!! I'm a total squash newbie :)
