July 16th: Another Day of No Phenology

This morning Gretel took us all down to P1, and we learned the proper way to collect pollen from plants and put it onto other plants. After getting to practice that ourselves, we split into small groups and went to do various jobs. Everybody agrees that Gina and Will got the best job. They went out to Hegg Lake and got to cut off all the Echinacea pallida heads. Now we have a beautiful bouquet of them on our lunch table! Per and I got to bag flower heads in P1 that will potentially be used in the cross-pollination experiment.

Amy is excited to bag heads at landfill!

After lunch, a group of us got sent out to Hegg Lake to help Taylor flag the rest of her hybrid plot. We found lots of little Echinacea plants and measured all their leaves.

Done flagging the hybrid plot!
