Someone new has the bug

By Penny Stine

It's so lovely when someone catches the gardening bug. And no, I'm not referring to squash bugs, I'm referring to that wondrous sense of how cool it is to stick a seed in the ground, give it some water, talk to it in encouraging ways and have a plant that you want begin to grow. I got this e-mail from Julie Norman, the Sentinel's online coordinator, who is growing her first garden:

"Look! A zucchini! I don't remember what kind... Erin McIntyre gave the seeds to me. I fought off squash bugs and eventually raked ALL the mulch away from the plant so they had nowhere to hide (I didn't have that many but was finding 2-3 bugs a day)."

 

Ah... welcome to the club, Julie. Did you ever think zucchini could be so exciting?
