Cutting Zucchini Plants
I have been told that cutting some stems off of a zucchini plant leaves the plant open to borers. The plant is getting huge and I'd prefer to prune it rather than letting it take over the whole garden-- that's what the above-mentioned person told me to do, which I think is way too hippie.
