And this one is for me . Does anyone think that my squash will last?

Massachusetts, United States Us

I started this plant very early in May and have been trying to grow it all summer but if anyone remembers I asked plenty of questions about this squash plant which at first I thought it was a cucmber. This is the first peice of fruit on any of the squash vine( the rest only gave flowers and died) But it is so late in the year I afraid it won't tolerate the weather any more. Any opinions anyone it is a winter butternut sqaush vine.

Hm, I don't want to discourage you, but as you say it is very late in the year. Maybe you can keep it in a sunny spot indoors to care for it and pamper it a bit? I don't really think it will fully ripen though. The problem by this time of the year is the rapid decline in light hours per day. Plants probably know aswell when the game's up!
Try starting some a bit earlier next year?
