How do you know when to harvest patty pan squash? I have lots of small squash, some vibrant yellow, and other still pale. Some small ones are starting to just fall off and flowers on others are dying. Help please! It looked like this was going to be a bumper crop!!

Most squash are picked when they are small. Look up the internet and have a look. If you like small ones about 40mm and up to 50-60mm for larger. If they are not pollinated they will just shrivel up and die. Read up about pollination.
