Freezing fresh vegetables

Is it okay to freeze raw, fresh vegetables (specifically yellow and zucchini squash) or should they be cooked first?

I would cook the zucchini & yellow squash before freezing. The water content is high & if you freeze them raw, they will be mushy when they are thawed.

When you freeze any fresh vegetable, the cells will burst and the result will be mushy.
