As part of our master plan to keep critters and grasshoppers from munching on our green beans, hubby and I built a screen box out of old window screens and placed it over the newly planted green bean bed. The poor little guys were hardly out of the soil and something was already munching on them. THIS should fix ’em! We’ll remove it when the bean plants start to flower. We are really hoping to squeeze in this last planting and if all goes according to plan…we should have plenty of green beans in about two months. NOW let’s see who’s going to win the war!
I almost forgot to show you all the newest addition to the garden. We had an old mailbox in the barn and I wanted to put it in the garden so I’d have a place to keep all of the little things I tend to lose when I’m gardening. Last week, hubby dug the hole and in it went! It’s right at the entrance to the garden. Isn’t it wonderful? And it is oh-so handy. I love it!
And now I’d like to introduce you to Katy, the katydid. Original, huh? Yesterday, as we were getting in the truck to head up to the other end of the property, this bugger scared the daylights out of me when I closed the door and looked out the window! Katy did not want to get off of the side view mirror and ended up going along for most of the ride until we stopped the truck right next to a branch that she could hop on to. That was actually my very first katydid sighting ever.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Let’s attack this week and really mean it!
