Answer: You can stop the production of squash by pinching out the tips of the vines. Zucchini is such a prolific plant that two or three plants will probably keep you in a season's worth of 5-6 inch squash. Share the remainder with neighbors - but beware - if they see you coming they may hide! Zucchini doesn't freeze or can well (it's 90% water), but you can grate it and freeze it for use in casseroles or zucchini bread.
