__X__ To Do List

We began the day doing phenology in P1, assessing the flowering status for each plant in the plot. Soon after we began phenology, the rain started so we regrouped at the Hjelm House and made an alternative plan. We split up into groups because we weren’t sure the Hjelm House could handle maintaining social distancing and the wifi for a Zoom meeting. We took turns discussing several articles posted in Dropbox having to do with racism. A few phrases that have kept me thinking were:
” Status quo is the problem,”
” We are blind to what we don’t know”
“everyone is racist, but not everyone is antiracist”
“my white privledge is having not to have to think about race”.

We also thought it may be a good idea to instead of only discussing racisim, but that we do an activity in the future.

After lunch, we returned to the plots, finishing phenology in P1 and the ’99 gardens.

Completing that task left us with finishing up the measuring being done in P8, assessing the Echin plants in each row and position. A very satisfying day as we were able to check off everything as completed for the day. We’ve got a great team with great attitudes. We could have just as easily packed it in after P1 phenology but several team members wanted to cross measuring P8 off the list.
