Home, Yellow Jackets and Porcupines

I’m back from Quebec after a great trip.  It was a long drive – 635 miles and 14 hours – but well worth it.  I’ll write up the trip soon, but I wanted to report on the yellow jackets that made a ground nest in our garden.  In the rush to get packed and on the road, I never tried any of the natural ways to get rid of them.  But while we were gone, a skunk (at least that’s who I’m guessing did it) dug up the nest and ate them.  They’re gone, and I didn’t do a thing to bring it about.

On another note, the young porcupine is still hanging around eating plants in our field.  My wife named him Pepe.  I’ve got some good photos of him and will post them soon.
