Monarch Ranch I - population: 7
I was telling my office mate about my monarch ranch and we decided that we should also have a monarch ranch at the workplace.
So this afternoon, I created Monarch Ranch II. I have some big glass jars that Dad gave me several years ago and I actually found them right away out in the garage. I added some pine shavings to the bottom and a stick, then out to the yard to try and find more caterpillars. I searched several of my milkweed patches and was able to only find one small caterpillar and a couple of eggs, but that's a good start, I think.
It's going to be fun to have these little guys in our office and hopefully we'll be able to raise a few more Monarch butterflies. I'll have to take a little walk around the prairie area at work again and see if I can find some more "stock" for this workplace ranch.
