XTREME

Today we weren’t just Team Echinacea. We were Extreme Team Echinacea. Will used his monster truck derby announcing voice to let everyone know that what we were doing today was extreme. This morning, we were sent out on special missions to do phenology, pollinator observations, or both (so extreme). We finished everything and still had time to collect phlox seed and do an aphid treatment before lunch. Wow.

At lunch, we talked about fun afternoon project ideas, like seeing whose car has the best working AC and finding out which area lake is best for swimming. Instead of doing those things, we got right back out to measure P1, which has a climate similar to a sauna. Every group only had to measure 2 rows and we were done for the week.

Back at the Hjelm House, Scott found some aphids crawling on his shirt and adopted them as his own children. We all enjoyed some root beer floats, and Scott enjoyed his new found fatherhood.

YAY FOR ROOT BEER FLOATS!!
