Should Squash Be Harvested Before A Hard Freeze

Question From: J. May - IOWA
Q: We are suppose to have a hard freeze tonight and about 100+squash to bring in. we were wondering if they needed to be harvested today before the hard freeze? I have asked my mother-in-law and several others and no one really knows. Please reply if you have time.


If you are talking about winter squash, they should be okay. Summer squash will not. Happy Yardening, Nancy
