What’s bugging your vegetable garden?


Despite Tuesday night’s frigid temperatures, a few people are already interested in planting their vegetable gardens and showed just how inspired they are to begin growing tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage and peas by attending a horticulture class at the Mary Wood Weldon Memorial Library.  

Jessie Thomas, a local horticulturist, taught those who turned out for the class how to rid their gardens of insects and weeds, as well as how to prevent the spread of disease.

Pat Conroy of Lucas, who moved to Barren County two years ago from northern California, was on hand to learn about the bugs and such locally.

“It’s different here. I want to know how to grow things here,” she said. “I know how to grow things there, but I want to know how to grow them here.”
