Bug Update

Since I was a wee bit skittish of getting blisters on my hands. I had a great plan to grab the top of the plant with tongs, quickly snip the bottom of the plant with scissors, fling it on the ground and the stomp the daylights out of the bugs with my boots. So boots on, tongs and scissors in hand I walk over to the plant.........
I wouldn't call it a plant anymore, it's all stems no leaves and no bugs. They ate their fill last night and moved on. Hopefully not to the cantaloupe plant............
In other news. I'm obsessed with getting my rabbit furs done right. I had two that I did a little different, they didn't stink like crap and turned out pretty good. Then I had four more that I did my old way, well they stunk like crap and the fur slipped again, total waste of time. So today I watched this skinny Cajun fellow on YouTube do about twenty different furs. They turned out pretty good, so in a couple weeks when we butcher buns again, I'm trying it his way. I hope it works out because I'm obsessed with figuring this out!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. So strange, wonder what it is? I live in Arizona and it was just walking on gravel when I saw it. Maybe they aren't fond of cactus?

    1. From what I read they like bee's, grasshoppers, soft bodied bugs and clearly the leaves of some plants. It was my first rodeo with these guys. I hope I don't see them again for awhile :/

  3. Bug stompin boots! I almost got a mental picture of you going out to kick BUG so to speak. Hard to tell where they went, maybe off of your property. I know nothing about furs but I can tell you that bunny is one of the best meats to eat, good stuff.

  4. Those are some sneaky bugs. Maybe they all died from something? Like the smell of your stinky rabbit furs??!! :)
