That is one big grasshopper.
Oh, i'd have to create hell on earth for those grasshoppers!
I know EG!!!! How should I go about doing that?I'm still thinking chickens... a pen... all around my garden!
Saw the title of your post and had to pop over and get the answer to this one. :) I would NOT have guessed that grasshoppers could gobble the melons!
Toni-My last cabbage had been safely under a row cover for about 4 weeks. I'd been trying to protect it. No way --darn buggers still got in there and chewed half the thing away. I salvaged about half of it. They were bad this year! I've covered my chard to keep them from thinking it's the last edible thing around. I think the GHs have left Cheyenne pretty much, hope the have left the Big Horns too.
Wow! They really went to town on that watermelon.
I *LOVE* your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
