Can I Cut Back My Zucchini Leaves?
I have a small, square foot garden, and unfortunately, I didn't give my 3 zucchini plants quite enough room. They are thriving, but the leaves are starting to shade some of my seedling cucumbers and a pepper plant. Can I cut back some of the leaves on that side of the zucchini plant?

You can, but make sure that you sterilize your cutting implement with rubbing alcohol before you trim to help reduce chances of disease getting into the plant.
