For our readers that don’t live in The Americas, we’re in a bit of a drought. So we’ve faithfully watered our veggie garden every other day or so, in hopes that we’d have some produce to munch on eventually!
Sadly though, the HOT weather we’ve endured this summer has found a way to prevail, by way of the influx of creepy crawly things. Most notably… grasshoppers (AND CRICKETS). The grasshoppers have invaded our garden, and feasted without reserve on our gourmet organic veggies. Specifically, our carrots, onions, green beans, peas, spinach, and lettuce. They look tragic.
Rest in Peace little spinach, rest in peace…
Astonishingly though, our tomatoes, cucumbers, and cantaloupe have managed to not only survive, but flourish! And for that we’re so excited!
I have NO CLUE what we’re going to do with all these cucumbers.
Hello little cantaloupes! I can’t wait for you to get into my belly! (NOTE! Is it just me, or does it seem like the word ‘cantaloupe’ should be singular AND plural? Not true! ‘CantaloupeS’ IS a real word! FACT!)
I was just feeling strongly that it was time to share a garden update, with it being August now and all.
How is YOUR garden doing? Are your grasshoppers numerous, and preferring certain veggies over others? Has the drought gotten the best of your crop? Do you have a ridiculous amount of a certain vegetable that you don’t know what to do with? Any suggestions on what to do with cucumbers that doesn’t involve vinegar?
