We pulled out our seed box yesterday. It’s full of envelopes stuffed with seeds from our gardens.
We had so much fun going through the box and seeing the gems we had saved in the fall.
Milkweed is the favorite, so we decided to plant these seeds first.
Separating the seeds from the fluff is fun, but you have to be quick or they could fly away.
We are planting a Monarch Waystation this year, our milkweed seeds are perfect for this. The waystation is a safe, organic place for the Monarch butterflies to lay their eggs. Milkweed is their host plant; the caterpillars will only eat milkweed.
Visit Monarch Watch to learn more about Monarchs, Monarch waystations and ways to protect this beautiful butterfly.
