When I am compressing pictures for the site small details are very noticeable, like the fact that the soil is much better in Fairview Park, Ohio than Columbia Station, Ohio. Or Suzy has done an amazing job amending her soil.

I have a sneaky suspicion that I may have sold plants with Monarch eggs on them. We had numerous Monarch Butterflies in our yard but, no caterpillars.

With 7 different milkweed species and well over 100 plants ( early spring) one would assume that our market plants would be chomped on a wee bit. Strangly, this is not the case.

Maybe I should have charged extra for the Monarch Caterpillar eggs, or at least looked closer at each plant.before selling them.
