Harvest Bush Delicata
This is the first year growing Delicata. The plant seems to be done growing and leaves are turning yellow. Days from transplant is about 76 days...Days to maturity in catalog is 80 days. Since Ive never grown this before, I think I can pull the plant and harvest the squash. My question is...the leaves turning color..does that mean its time to harvest? Are they other ways to tell if the squash is ready to harvest?
Im also growing Lil Pump Ke Mon, which is 100 Days and the plant looks like its done also, but its only 76 days also. I dont have any disease issue with these two squashes, altho, the pumpkin..Mrs Wrinkles is battleing Powdery Mildew, which Im trying to control. Any advise is welcomed. Thanks.
