Our seedlings are looking great, and we have begun the hardening off process. Today I put the seedlings outside for a couple of hours, and then increase the amount of time they are outside for 7 days. Avoid putting your seedlings in the direct sun in the beginning and make sure you water them well during this process.
This is a first for me. I am traveling to Washington DC with 3,000 + pinned bees from one of our research studies. The project examined the value of urban agricultural crops and weedy plants as forage for pollinators. I will meet with an expert tomorrow who will verify our identifications before we move forward to publish the study.
