Was going to post pictures with a couple of minor problems but my new computer wants to import all my photo's. not just the new ones, and the program is in German. I hope  to call someone today. Anyway my trellis holding up two spaghetti squash collapsed and down they went. I tied them up a little and grabbed a rhubarb leaf and folded it several times as a cushion for the vine against the string. So far it's working. The other  garden issue is the caterpillars that ate all my fennel fronds, nothing left. If I would have seen them earlier I would have moved them to the dill which I have a lot of. Other than those we have had a super year so far. Last night we had a warning of possible ping pong size hail so we went out and picked all the tomatoes with coloring to ripen inside. We missed the hail thankfully but now we have about 40 some lbs. of ripening tomatoes and where to put them.

Good for you on the miss and the tomato harvest! 
cheers
At the end of season I put mine single layered into a box & stick it in the corner of the living room where I can remember to check them once in a while.  If I wouldn't forget to check, I could put them under my bed.

John, you have posted this in the New England forum. I will move it to the appropriate forum when I can access my computer when I get home tonight.

Hey, John, how goes the winter squash harvest? 
We have a winter storm warning for Wednesday so I went and harvested them all.  Not the best year but still a nice pile.  Oddly I found the most squash hanging in the wild plum bush.

My squash is doing great, the bugs are numerous but I am keeping them manageable. I harvested 6 acorn and one spaghetti for sale up at the apple orchard store. I have left the others on because of the question I asked at a past farmers market. In early Aug. I stopped by a farm booth that comes up from the Arkansas valley every Tues. They are the real deal and I have bought from them for years. I asked them when are winter squash ready for harvest. They said the usual about color and pressure test and then the following: Winter squash are not ready until after the first frost. We never plant until mid June because winter squash is not near as good until it has a frost. So I am trying to leave on all I can to test what he said. I have many early butternut that are ripe so I will try one in a week or so and then do a another one  after frost to see if I can tell the difference. I'll report what I find.

This is not the case in my area. Also, if the squash is ripe I pick it and take it into the house, before some varmint gets it.
