Today I went out for week three with Michael Ibrahim and Fiona O’Keefe. We measured plants 294 to 325. Our section had quite a few Monarchs, and many of them were already 2nd or 3rd instar. One plant had 12 eggs on it, and another one had what we think was a 4th instar caterpillar.
Overall, the plants seemed to be doing well, as did the Monarchs. There wasn’t anything particularly noteworthy this trip.
