Got Milkweed?

Please to announce another recognition for doing my part to save the Monarchs.

The metal plaque will be placed along side of the Backyard Gardeners Recognition to providing the important habitat to wildlife.

We can all do our part by simply providing host plants imperative to the survival of the species.

Milkweed plants are part of the complete cycle needed for caterpillars to gorge themselves before the cocooning stage can happen.

This plant you see is a “snack” for maybe 1 caterpillar. The leaves would be stripped in a few hours. So you see, we need to be diligent and plant as much as we can!

Thanks for doing your part. Needs seeds?
