Welcome to Andes

Following the departure of Team CowBee, the rest of team Echinacea has had an eventful two days. On Wednesday morning Brigid, Riley, Michael, Kristen, and I moved into our new lodging at Andes Tower Ski Area. While the ski runs are not open in August, we get to enjoy a scenic view of the hill from our front door.

The Hjelm house feels much less crowded without the Wooster contingent of the team, but there is still plenty left to do in the field season. Today, for instance, was the first full team harvest session. In groups of two we visited every single of the more 900 heads in p1. Of these, quite a few were already ready for to be harvested.
