Behm & I went to a storage building auction a few weeks ago.  This scale was one of the items that was for sale.  I loved it, but no place to put it so I let someone else take it home with them.  Some of the things that were stored should have been thrown away.    Just like my room of junk, but at least I'm not having to pay someone else to store my "treasures".

Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th!!  Thankful for the freedom I have in this great country of ours (even with all the problems it is a great place to live)!

Grasshopper Menu

Innocent looking little thing, isn't it?  Add about a thousand more of these and they are quite the eaters.  They especially like squash,

and corn.

So far the cantaloupes (cantalopes?) haven't been touched.  Look how much this baby has grown in a week!
The mesquite trees on the side of the garden look like they have yellow beans on them, but are filled with grasshoppers just waiting for their turn to attack.  If only I could figure out a market for grasshoppers I might be rich before this summer is over.
