Am I supposed to trim some of the leaves off of my zucchini plant ? It's is spreading like crazy.

No, usually only trim any broken leaves or something like that. Zucchini plants can get quite large.

Do you have any blossoms yet?

Welcome to NGA, @DKRAYNAK .

Zucchini do take up quite a bit of room...

you aren't really "supposed to" cut leaves off.

Here's an idea that I'm trying in my garden this year, no idea if it will work but I'm tired of stepping on the leaves trying to get to the zucchini...
