Default Harvest time!!! ….. it’s FREE!!!!

This is the second crop of the year. I’m spraying and stopped to get a quick 3 year supply.

Dry it for 3-4 days then open it (I recommend outside… and not in your yard, lol)
Stuff in empty and dry water bottle and refill whatever container you use from that. The m&m plastic tubes work great or equivalent

He is using a pinch of the fibers to check the wind. Cotton ball is just as good, but a lot less hassle. Whole bag for a dollar.

I fill old, cleaned out plastic snuff cans with them and slit the top open for easy access. Works like a charm! Don’t take up much room in your pocket. And as Charlie said….can watch it a LONG ways and see all the different currents and movements.

Far better than just wind checker… current and thermal checker! It will open your eyes to your set ups and the gimmicks you “think” work

Absolutely not true. It's more than just fibers like cotton. The seed is attached to the fibers and makes a lighter than air "vehicle" out of each one. It floats around like a little parachute that can be observed for several minutes especially on those quiet, still days when there seems to be "no" wind... They just float around on the slightest air current and will give an accurate representation of where your scent may travel...


Cotton is OK, but these things are in a whole different league.

We have a tons growing along our sidewalk right now. Had a monarch on them just yesterday.

Yes you can plant the seeds and it will grow, like a weed!

I could send a big bag down later in summer if anyone wants to distribute it amongst yourselves.

If I sent postage $ would you be opposed to mailing me some? I can PM you my address!

I keep hearing great things about milkweed but never really put it to use out in the field. Id like to give it a shot this year.
