Forcing Spaghetti Squash to Ripen
This year my spaghetti squash set fruit late and are just start barely starting to change color.
Once they set fruit it was at a maddening pace so I've been trimming vines and flowers for about 2-3 weeks already - once I hit 24 squash on three plants I figure I had enough!!!
Anyway, as September (yikes) is next week I need to get these guys to start ripening a little faster. I've heard you can "root prune" squash but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Would this involve cutting the roots that the vines put out and just leave the main root?
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
