Squash buckled

After having been overwhelmed by butternut squash last year, I branched out this year. Added new varieties, but have very low yeild of the newbies. Glad the old standard also is coming through for me!
Current count is a whopping 2 orangetti and 3 acorns. Thank goodness I've got more than 10 butternuts rounding out the score. Here are a few at varying stages of development, they change color fairly dramatically as they ripen/cure. Acorn goes from pale green to dark green, and butternut goes from light green striped to pinky/cream. Orangetties have been yellow the whole time... I guess I just have to watch for the stem to brown to know when to pick them.
