A small, diverse permaculture farm (and now, Bakery!) in beautiful SE Minnesota - our dream come true life focused on Local Food, Local Art, Local Music.
Was that a pot of stink bugs?
It was a flower pot of squash bugs. I have never seen them before, but have a lot this year and they have decimated the squashes. It was a weird insect year--usually we are battling potato bugs but didn't see a single one all season. A great, long season for fireflies, but scarcely a Monarch butterfly; we are usually all aflutter with them..
squash bugs are bad here too .. creepy things. Much to everyone's surprise I have a lot of Monarchs in my CRP acreage even after #1 mowed it off ...
