I have problems with Winter squash maturing. Several varieties of kabocha have had a chance after I discovered Cha Cha. Avoiding those with longer days to maturity didn't help. Cha Cha seems to have less availability so I should continue with exploring.
I prefer that kabocha to Burgess Buttercup because of that blossom end "cup" wasted space. Buttercup doesn't have a very short dtm but it has worked for me for many years.
I wonder if your high water table is a squash problem. Mine is likely the cool nights.
@Branching Out , pumpkin bisque is very tasty. DW and I need to get more into that - here in the middle of Soup Season .
there were a lot of things going on this season which made it hard to get a good squash crop. most of it i would put down to deer trampling and grazing damage and a very long dry spell.
