Pruning Zucchini?!

Had never heard of pruning zucchini until i searched online for a way to keep my plants producing.  So, i tried it – on all of them – it’ll work or kill them, but it’s okay either way, i have plenty frozen up for winter use now anyway.

I used some hand pruners since these stalks are very easy to cut, yet i was afraid if i tried ripping them off, i would damage the main stalk.  The video i watched said to cut off the leaf stalks up to the first flowers.
