This summer has been the hottest driest one we've had in awhile. The plants are all withering and dying or being devoured by bugs. I say it's time to fight fire with fire. Watch out grasshoppers, we're coming for you!

Yes, we did it!  My sons come up with some fun stuff, especially my middle one that always has some sort of survivalist checklist going through his head.

So, don't let this dry, hot summer get you down.  Just get creative!
