Search The Homestead

Sunday, September 26, 2010


It started raining this evening!  Fingers crossed, everyone!

And the heat broke!  Lots of exclamation points, but I am feeling that hope might spring eternal.  And tomorrow I am going to investigate netting to keep out the grasshoppers.

Luck, luck, luck.  I am not giving up yet.

Buh-bye Gloomy Jen.


  1. Can you put hot peppers on your stuff to keep the hoppers away? By stuff I mean garden.

  2. Thank you for clarifying - I worried the blog had gotten "adult!"

    I am not sure about the peppers. Dale wants to try moth balls. I still need to research that. I can't find netting fine enough for the hoppers, but since nothing is growing, it might be a moot point.


I love your comments! You do not need to have a GMail account to comment - you can use the Name/URL option, or even Anonymous. Either way, I love to hear from you! Thanks!
