Trying Milkweed Seeds (Again)
Earlier this Winter, the girls and I sent along a SASE and our little donation to the Save our Monarchs Foundation and a few weeks later, we received two packets of the seeds you see above. We're going to give Milkweed a shot this Spring. This isn't the first time I've posted about Milkweed seeds here on the blog. Back two years ago, we scored some Milkweed seeds at a parade that I posted here.
By now, you know that the Monarch Butterfly population is in severe decline and milkweed seeds are one of the keys to their survival. Planting Milkweed is something that we - as a family - can do to help the Monarchs. Once the weather warms up, I'll work with the girls to find a sunny spot and plant the seeds and watch them (hopefully) sprout in the early Summer.
