Week 28

 

The wind was really picking up this week so the plants were slightly more difficult to measure. Luckily the wind helps keep the temperature down and the work is getting easier (for better or worse) as more of the plants are dying.  The ditch is also easier to navigate now that we have been working in it for a while. There are also some beautiful butterflies out there, although they are not all monarchs.  We have not been seeing very many monarchs, but this is not surprising since many of the milkweed plants are either dead or dying; however there are still a lot of large and small milkweed bugs.
