I started growing Squash for the first time this year, and this is the sole harvest from 4 plants. Two went by the wayside early on,because I was unaware they had to be pollinated. Despite efforts to do this with my other two, this is the only one that pollinated properly. I will not bother next year because they are too fiddely, and take up far too much room. What I need to know is, is this one is ready to be removed, and allowed to harden a little. I hope the pics are clear enough. Many thanks.
