I have exciting news! My new book, Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden: A Natural Approach to Pest Control (Timber Press, 2014) is now on the market.
I was so excited to find one of my favorite native shrubs this spring at a local nonprofit’s plant sale. Needless to say, I bought one and it is already at home in one of my perennial borders.
Stupid stinkbugs have ruined my corn! I was so excited to harvest my Jade Blue sweet corn, but when I peeled back the husk, the kernels are all shriveled and warped. The foliage is completely covered with stinkbugs and the white splotchy damage caused by their feeding.
