Friend or Foe?

Lately there have been grasshoppers. Everywhere. In the garden.

(Copulating, even!)

Bryant chucks them over the fence, but I just can’t bring myself to do so. I think they’re precious.

As precious as the quail who eat our freshly-planted seeds.

Nature may be brutal, but I leave the pest removal up to my fellow librarians/gardeners and charge myself with documentation.



To Till a Garden Plot

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

It’s a whole new garden! Weeded, tilled, and ready for planting (as seen above). This year’s crops will include peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, beans, sweet corn, melons, radishes, and squash.

We are so proud:
