Pruning squash plants
So my two squash plants are growing really fast (both the zucchini and yellow kind). Some of the giant leaves are starting to push into or cover other things, like my eggplant.
I've already cut off a long stem from each of the two plants. I'd like to get a bit more aggressive however, with the goal of keeping the leaves away from other plants, and maybe even to encourage more upward growth. Will it harm the plants if I prune another one or two stems from each? How will it affect the yield?
By the way, I can't say definitively if these are bush or vine types because the seed packets didn't specify. I've never grown veggies before so take my opinion with a grain of salt... but they don't appear to have any inclination to climb, so I'm thinking they're the bush variety.
Thanks for the help!
