Interesting at least to me, is that the Virginia grape growers face the prospect of harvesting the bugs along with the cabernet and chardonnay and putting them through the crusher – and then the risk of stink bug aroma is in what had been a fine wine -- It takes as little as 5 stink bugs in one ton of grapes to have this occur.

By mid September, we will have 2 more generations of them. By mid September, I may be posting from a padded room, that hopefully is stink-bug free...
Okay, I'm done now, I won't bring them up again. At least I'll try not too. I hope your week is off to a good start. Sorry I wasn't able to stop by your blogs today, but I'll make time to see what you're up to on Tuesday!
