And I even have a small yard and only about 8 milkweed plants of varying size. Most of those were cut down feeding the 40 PUPAs in waiting. Or were cut down due to aphids or molding leaves. That is a lot of monarchs that can be supported in a small area.
So, it really does highlight that even a little milkweed left naturally can help in a big way.
Some of the milkweed has bounced back really fast, so I'm thinking I'll be okay with the milkweed.
My goal for next year was 100. I'm coming close to that in my rookie year at Monarch rearing.
