The Veteran's Day holiday left us with a short week to complete our many tasks. Our team was anxious to get to the research library to finish up our projects. We trudged away on our research and PowerPoints for half of our time, while the other half was spent in the field. We watered on Monday, making sure to prioritize our recently planted crop at Planting Site 4, behind the Visitor's center. We seeded and mulched this same site. It looks great now that everything has come together! On Wednesday the weather was treacherous - cold, windy and overcast, with the occasional sleet-like rain. Nevertheless, we were seeding and mulching Planting Site 7, which seems to be jinxed, as every time we work there, the weather turns sour (flashback to salvaging the muddy site in frigid, pouring rain.) The seeding plan for P7 will make for an exciting experiment. The site is divided into a grid, where half is seeded and mulched while the other half is exclusively mulched. It will be interesting to see how the site reacts over time to this difference in management.
