On Wednesday afternoon right after school, my partners and I met up at the ditch. It had been great weather throughout the day so I was glad that we would have good weather during our data collection. We were surprised at how hot it ended up being, but we attributed it to the fact that we were basically standing still during measurements. This was the first week that I personally had more than one plant to measure, so I was excited to see how the plants were growing and take measurements for the first time. We were surprised at how sporadic the plants were in growth because we would have 2 plants full of stems that took us a while to measure, then we could go up to 5 plants that had not even emerged yet. Overall this was a relatively quick trip, but it was fun to take measurements for the first time.
