It's been cooler here, and I've been rushing to lay mulch and start seeds for fall/winter.
One of the seedlings that was being attacked seems to have survived the grasshopper army, and is putting out a tiny leaf from its nubby stalk. Good for it! The rest of the flat seems destined for the recycle bucket.
I've decided that my first goal needs to be trees, shrubs, and perennials, because the annuals don't seem to be surviving long enough to plant! But I did plant a grapevine in the backyard this week. Hopefully it will survive -- the last three haven't, but you never know.
I haven't been feeling well the last few days, so not much has gotten done on the front yard. Been mostly inside working on the site rather than out in the "real world". :)
