This week was off to a busy start as the magnolias finally showed enough root growth to be waterlogged. The trees will be fully submerged for a 14-day period. During that time we will be taking photosynthesis and stem diameter measurements. The maples will take their plunge next Monday and then we will be on double duty! But just because the trees are taking an extended swim doesn’t mean we will be sitting around guarding. We have other important duties to address, such as feeding our hungry caterpillars … and feeding ourselves! Keep reading to find out more about the Root Lab cuisine.
First we foraged, then we feasted! We cooked these up with just a little bit of avocado oil, salt, and pepper.
