Hitting the field again tomorrow. Likely at least two weeks early from ‘regular’ desert seasons. A bit of rain and high temperatures has apparently lead to massive ‘all-chips-in’ for the native annuals that have been holding on for 5+ years of drought.
The very likely consequence is a mismatch with the pollinators within the region that are NOT up and busy yet.
Leap year indeed.
