  1. One of the recent Monarch butterflies that hatched feeding on Joe-Pye weed in our garden. Not nearly as many as last year.
  2. My only June sale, a $20 PU, has been refunded, and my only sale so far in July was for $5.06 gross, $1.52 net. How's that for misery?! 🙂
  3. 1 for $20 gross. Not exclusive. 4 previous sales cleared, so I get paid this month.
  4. Thanks, Betty. We have quite a few cone flowers in our garden, along with Monarda, Dame's Rocket, and Phlox. They all attract butterflies.
  5. Here's a pair on newly hatched Monarchs sharing a cone flower.
  6. Thanks, Betty. We don't do anything other than plant the plants and watch what happens. We have given up on planting vegetables, and just plant flowers that attract the birds and butterflies. Our growing season is too short for most vegetables, and we don't have much space.
  7. Higher $$ RF IQ sale Magazine, Editorial print and digital use. inside.Repeat use within a single issue.
  8. Our plants are mostly in full sun - not sure how they would do with only 3 hours.
  9. We plant swamp milkweed, Asclepias incarnata, where the monarchs lay eggs which hatch into caterpillars. After the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis they feast on the Joe-Pye weed. Neither of these plants seem to spread underground. We purchase most of the plants, but find and liberate some from the wild. Both are common here in the Adirondacks. I believe 10 is the correct number.
