Can I save any of my late blooming butternut squash

We live in Wisconsin and we had a late start due to a cool, rainy spring. It is now three weeks into Aug. and I am still getting new fruit blooms. We usually get our first frost in late Oct. /early Nov. Thanks for any help!

You may be able to pick the green fruit and ripen them off the vine when the frost comes. This article has information on that:

You may also want to consider building hoop houses over the squash to extend your season a bit more.
