Rain + No Wind = Itchy Night

Hello Echinacea Project!  Yesterday was a very productive day. It had rained the night before, so we all brought our laptops and started on our project proposals!  We were very concentrated and hard workers 🙂

Team being very productive

During lunch, Jennifer gave a very informative presentation about bees and plant flowering times.

After lunch, we split up into task forces. Some people worked with the bees, some people did plant data at the P2 experimental plot, and some people went out to P1 to start the aphids and spittlebug projects. The unfortunate part about the afternoon was there was no wind, therefore every member of Team Echinacea was very itchy that evening from all the mosquito bites we got.
