of the grasshoppers in the garden.  They sure are a hungry bunch!  Wednesday afternoon the black eye peas were almost ready to pick.  Yesterday, they had already been eaten.

We bought a small freezer earlier this year to be sure to have enough room to "put up" our harvest.  Don't look like we're going to need it.  That's what I get for planning ahead!

Hopefully next year will be better!

Garden News

Pulled the carrots yesterday.  They are a very pretty plant with their fern like leaves.  Not yesterday though...all you could see were stems covered in grasshoppers.  The grasshoppers have attacked the garden.  Just hoping they don't entirely wipe it out!  Maybe these birds need to move to our garden and have a nice dinner!
