When to harvest Butternut Squash?

Dianita(z7 MD)August 24, 2005

Hi there,

I have a nice little squash on one of my vines that has been maturing for about a month. I don't know how to tell if it's ripe for picking - any tips?

Same question here. I've got about 6-8 nice size butternut squash but I'm not really sure how to tell when they are ripe.
