Garden Update-Going Native

We are truly going native in our Butterfly Way Station. Last week we made our first trek to the garden in months due to the abundant April and March rains. There were quite a few surprises...sweet peas we planted last year were happily climbing up the chain link fence. Purple Vetch was busy nitrogen fixing. Our native sages were sweetly perfuming the air. Slugs and other decomposers were hard at work breaking down dead plant material.
