The love of veggies

squash.....

okra....

tomatoes....
oh how I love the veggies...

but when you have veggies...
grasshoppers and other insects show up...

 when you have veggies...
you need lots of water....
especially in this Texas heat....

I love all of these veggies myself. We finally have a bit of rain here in KY. Hope you get some soon.

The veggies look great but the grasshopper makes me shudder. I don't like those guys.

Oh, your veggies are really growing. Yep, those insects love our veggies too don't they? Hugs

I love veggies, too! My favorite summer lunch is a veggie wrap--I just cut up whatever I have on hand plus some marinated artichokes & roll it all in a whole wheat wrap. Yum!

Wow, your veggies look great. I wish okra grew better here.
I would just as soon avoid the grasshopper.

I tried to grow okra last year with limited success. Some plants just don't do well without that southern heat.
