Start harvesting. Young delicate are incredibly delicious steamed with some
hollandaise sauce on them. Eggs Benedict progresses here from asparagus to
zucchini to Delicatas.

Subject: [Market-farming] Delicata Squash question

Thanks for the help with the eggplants! A new question:

I got my Delicata squash (Sugar Loaf) out early this year, and they
already have some beautiful full-sized fruit. I want them to fully ripen
so they will keep a while, but I also want the vines to keep producing.
Can I leave them on the vines till frost, like I do with all the other
winter squash, or should I be looking for some sign of ripeness and
picking them earlier?
