We have tons of squash, but they are turning a little brown, like rust, in spots. Can we pick them now and let them ripen til they are ready? Will they turn darker if we pick them now? Thank you.

You can sometimes ripen them off the vine, depending on how close to maturity they are. This article will help you try: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/ripening-green-unripe-squash.htm
