The big news around here is the stink bugs - otherwise known as box elders. They are everywhere!

I thought I'd share a few pictures of their infestation. Yuck!

They have really invaded what was left of the garden, and have taken up residence in the maple tree out front. It seems their only natural predators are chickens, so... one more point in my attempt to get a few hens in the backyard. I keep trying even though our yard is not considered large enough for our county to allow chickens. Honey is still not OK with that. You'd think seeing a mass of bugs like this every day would sway him!
