Monday June 29th

Another bustling day here in Douglas County. Gretel, Ilse, Ruth, and I continued working on the crossing experiment this morning while everyone else got busy with their independent projects. Mike and Reina were taking pictures of plants and counting trichomes while Marie and Kory were at Hegg Lake. Sarah B (you guessed it) continued her work on phenology while Sara Z collected some very mysterious ants that have been eating the head of one of the plants in the crossing experiments (uh oh).

After lunch the group started measuring plants in the common garden. While the weather forecast said only 10% chance of rain today, we got hit with some definite showers and were forced to abandon outdoor work for the rest of the day. Instead we had our second group tutorial in R where we learned some more basics like randomization and creating data frames.
