You can always tell when fall is approaching and squash plants are nearing the end of their lives. The leaves turn yellowish and dry, though it might still be weeks before the first frost. If you would like to enjoy the fruits of these plants well through the winter, allow them to grow large with firm outer shells in the late growing season. They will last in cool dry temperatures for months.
