Milkweed (FIRST sighted)

Date: 03/29/2018

It is so early, the milkweed here is barely out of the ground.

I will have Swamp, Common, Whorled, and 2 other less common varieties that I honestly cannot remember their names. I avoid tropical and am not fond of butterfly weed, leaves more course and I just think they are more bug-prown. They are great nectar plants, DO NOT FORGET to grow nectar plants. After hatching they need to eat . . .

I am doubling my milkweed production. 2 beds: 5 x 10 to 12 feet each. I am planning to tent quite a bit to encourage better survival rates.
