I joined the list a few days ago and have been lurking and enjoying. 
Here is a question: I have a volunteer that is happily growing out of my
compost bin; either a zuc or butternut squash plant, too soon to tell. 
Since I did not plant either (just Delicata this year) I would like to
let it grow.  In attempting to train it off the lawn and into the garden
area I noticed that it has put down little roots in some spots.  If I
broke or cut these roots in order to train the vine, would it damage the
plant?  Thank you.
