Is this a butternut squash plant?!? (And how to care for it...)
We bought this plant early in the year from a roadside stall and it was labelled as a butternut squash. Now that it is formed, it doesn't look like a traditional butternut squash. Maybe it's a different type, or maybe it's something else entirely!
Aside from identification, it would be handy to know whether it looks ripe and ready to harvest, and if not how I will know when it is?
And one last thing... I have not pruned the plant at all. I've just let it do it's own thing and run amok. Is that ok or should I have (and should I now) cut some leaves back as you do with pumpkins?
