Welcome! (6/17/15)

Welcome to the Climate Change Garden’s first post! All the plants have been transplanted into their proper beds and are still adjusting to their new surroundings. While the plants continue to adjust we have noticed small differences in growth between some of the plants. The food crops outside of the high tunnel showed slightly better germination than their counterparts inside the high tunnel, while the nectar plant, Penstemon digitalis, inside the high tunnel, bloomed later than its outside counterpart. Insects, like lacewings and spittle bugs, have already noticed the new additions to the garden and have already begun making small snacks out of Sympotrichum cordifolium and Monarda didyma, both inside and outside of the high tunnel.
