This is rural Minnesota where we are working
corn on one side and soybeans on the other and little bits of prairie in between
This is part of the Recruitment experiment. Here we are trying to locate spots where Echinacea seeds have been planted 5,6, or 7 years ago.
here Rachel is using a metal detector to find the nails that mark where the Echinacea are. In the background Julie is using two measuring tapes to locate the same nails.
IG CV RM & JN search for Echinacea plants for the recruitment experiment
