After much anticipation, our winter squash is (more than) ready to be harvested! Some of them are huge, as above, but size is not, in fact, the most telling sign of a winter squash ready for the pickin’.
You want to look for a hard brown stem. Green stems mean their still growing, but a dried up stem means “pick me! pick me!”
You learn something new every day.
