Picking Butternut Squash
I have read and read and read and everything seems to say to leave butternut squash on the vine until the vine starts to die/before the 1st frost.
I have one that looks like it will be ready soon-- do I still leave it on until the vine dies/1st frost (I am in MA.) or do I remove it in hopes that removing it will plump up the other small butternut squash on the vine?
Does it work the way it does with cucumbers that removing it makes room for more growth? & Won't it be gigantic? Its already looking so big!
