I read an article that my husband found that says the number of Monarchs that are overwintering in Mexico this year is down 59% from last year. I posted on the Annuals forum and the Perennials forum and asked for help. I'm hoping to get more people to grow milkweed this year, and to encourage a few to try raising Monarchs. I invited them to check out this forum for information, and I know you will all welcome any who find their way here. I will be so devastated if we lose this amazing creature, so I'm asking for each of us to increase our individual efforts just a little bit more. I'm going right now to sow as many milkweed seeds as I have left, and I'll be dragging my kids and their friends on egg/cat hunting ventures this summer to raise as many as I can this year. Let's see if we can't turn the tides for our fragile friends. Thanks for listening.
