Hey guys!
Our first data collection at the ditch was a success! We managed to dodge the rain and found a single milkweed sprout! Tate didn’t have rain boots and his everyday sneakers became water shoes but that didn’t stop him from diligently looking for tiny milkweeds. We found a giant empty snail shell right next to a milkweed and there were lots of small bugs on the ground which was very moist and muddy. The rain has made all the plants very lush and the ditch was very full with muddy water. There were some very large dog paw prints along with some smaller critters prints in the mud. We made good time with the data collection because there was only one plant to analyze but hopefully next week more sprouts will break through!
