Pick one now and eat it if that is what you want to do. If you want to
store them, you will have to wait until the stem dries out completely,
harvest them with 2 to 8 inches of stem left on them (don't use the stems as
handles). Then lay them on the back porch in the sun for 10 days to cure
( learned this trick from Len in Queensland), and then lay them in the
coolest room of the house. I was still eating squash from the 2002 harvest,
in early 2004.
