First Monarch!

On September 20, 2008, the first Monarch visited our Asclepias (milkweed) or Butterfly Weed in the B3 Garden (Beneficials, Butterflies and Bees).

The Butterfly Weed was planted by Daniel in January 2008. Duke and Gianna helped put down cardboard sheet mulch for weed control before planting. A weed problem started anyway at the Butterfly Weed and moved past the adjacent creeping Ceanothus. Kikuyugrass got established in a planting hole. It has exploded in the beneficial insect habitat.
