GreenFolks Notes

by Sarah Moore

The GreenFolks Garden currently has only one milkweed plant growing, but it is well watched and cared for, as milkweed is the host plant for Monarch butterflies.
My family has a nice stand of milkweed next to our house. My son recently picked some leaves that had the tiny butterfly eggs on them. We have been enjoying watching the caterpillars grow and change into chrysalises.
