The monarchs are migrating, so let's do COMMON MILKWEED, which I get very emotional about. There's a whole subfamily of butterflies who mate and lay eggs on milkweeds, which the larvae feed on. Deforestation and, especially, industrial agriculture hurt milkweed populations, but you can plant it in your yard. Common milkweed is a good choice for temperate areas; its life cycle is similar to the butterflies'. In September/October, the fruit splits open and releases the seeds!
Introduction for knzk gang Show more
Okay, hello, I live on a wee farm in central Illinois with my husband Kyle, cats Evelyn (terrible gremlin) and Shankly (perfect prince), and several chickens. For work, I scan books for the Internet Archive and post pictures of weird books sometimes. I make a lot of food and have a lot of extremely passionate opinions about baseball (Cubs and Twins) and figure skating. I'm a socialist because I'm a big softie.
BY THE WAY: all the wildflowers I post are native to Illinois, because I missed all the local forest preserves and parks I followed on Twitter and am trying to recreate that for myself
I've never run more than one mile
I was never grounded as a teen, partly because of, you know, everything I have said, but also because my parents are hippies
In The Heights is so much better than Hamilton
I've never graduated from college, looooooooooooooooooooooool
I've never been in the attic in the house I've lived in for three years, could be Hereditary up there, who can say
40. I've never heard "Despacito" outside of a figure skating context (I can't be 100% sure of this, but I'm pretty sure)
It'd be a real shame if a bunch of people went to this shitty article, hit the "Quick Poll" button in the upper right and voted for inclusion.
Sure hope nobody does that. You little rascals.
You know what, there are also things that I have done that most people haven't, like be on "Jeopardy!" and testify at a trial and well no wait that's basically it
I've, uh, I've got chickens too
I've never worn heels to work
I've never had a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte
I never went to a "party" in high school, nor was I ever invited (my husband, from the next town over, informs me that the Johnsburg party scene was very bad anyway)
I've never enjoyed a single song by Soundgarden
35. I've never seen any of the Marvel movies
I've never seen a panda but six weeks from now that will not be the case, if all goes as planned (maybe I'll touch the ocean when I'm in San Diego too)
I've never gotten a bikini wax and it sounds like my actual literal worst nightmare, I have a stomachache just typing this
I've never had Facebook
I've never been pregnant (and, unless a cascading series of catastrophes happens, I never will)
I don't care where you went to college.
