Either replant them into the ground or into pots. They won't survive in a dry state

Too much nitrogen feed and not enough potash feed. Try tomato plant food

Do you have badgers? They could be searching for the grubs of crane flies, known as leatherjackets https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=651 Birds could be pecking them out the grass making a mess

I wouldn't plant it out until it was a well established plant growing in a 2litre pot, remembering to plant it deeper each time you pot it on

To get seeds from a Patty Pan as shown in your picture you would have to leave it on the plant to grow very large and with a hard skin, but the plant might stop growing more which you want to eat. So I wouldn't bother about saving seeds, or not until quite late on. Saving seed is easier for the winter storing squash rather than the summer (using straight away) squash as the winter squash are kept growing until the fruit is fully matured which means the seeds are viable for sowing next year.

I would say that you would need a pot much bigger than the one on the right above for the long term, just to give you an idea
