Re: The First Zucchini

Congratulations on your first zucchini.  I have been fretting
because none that I planted a couple of weeks ago, nor any
of the sunflowers I planted at the same time came up.  Then
I happened to notice empty husks of squash and sunflower
seeds lying on the ground near where they had been planted.
I don't know if the culprits were birds or chipmunks, but I'm
guessing the latter, since they are especially numerous this
year.  I have replanted, adding a generious helping of red
pepper flakes to the hole and surrounding ground.  If it was
chippies, that might help, but not if it was birds.  Frustrating!

It's happened, I picked the first zucchini of the year last Sunday
night. Actually I picked about four of them, you know how it is with
zucchini, it's easy to have too many, but at this time of year I'm
catching them at about four inches long. I brought them in and showed
them to husband, who said "Oh no, not already". Some people have no
sense of grand occasions. :-)
