Septem-brrr 11: A day without harvest

As the title suggests, today was the only day this week that we didn’t harvest. It was also the chilliest by far! With a nice cool 48 degrees to start the day, we went to one of the recruitment plots to do demography and didn’t find a single flowering plant. We tried going to the other plot nearby and realized that it was going to be wet and we didn’t have boots so we pushed it off for later.

We then went and did seedling searches for the rest of the morning and got quite a bit done!

After lunch Ali and Katherine practiced driving and Amy and Danny went to another site to look for seedlings. After that we harvested a bunch of Bouteloua curtipendula to put into our one of our most recent experimental plots. Overall it was a productive day with a lot of fun and a large amount of cold wind.
