One big cheap healthy meal for the girls!
I used to be squeamish about catching grasshoppers. Now I catch them with bare handS and give to my girls. They (grasshoppers) used to be all over the sweet potato patch. Now the girls have taken a liking to the SP patch, with grasshoppers and leaves. The whole meal in one go ahA!
Cardoon :) Good for you! I'm ashamed to say I don't have any growing going into the cold weather. Have you been eating the stems at all?
Not Artichoke some of Lissa's Cardoon, have been growing for 12 months now & not a sign of a flower. But having plenty of room will leave them in place.
Knock on wood, no grasshoppers here at the moment. I've found squashing caterpillers and grasshoppers in situ does actually deter more from coming to feast.
o wow! love it! thanks jane for inspiration and i was wondering that Elaine.
Artichoke in the background Jane? It never ceases to amaze me what variety you can grow so much further north than we are. Maybe being a little inland gives the plants a bit more cold than we get here on the coast.
Carrots, beet & mizuna, grasshoppers have had their share!
