It’s almost been five months since I started my internship at the Lockeford PMC and change is in the air. We’ve wrapped up seed collection for the season, my fellow intern has moved on to new adventures, and it’s finally starting to cool off, with temperatures in the 70s. It should start raining soon as well. My exciting news is that my internship has been extended and I’ll be living in California for at least a few more months! There’s still plenty to do…I’ve been helping out with fall planting, attending a cover crop workshop, and learning how to do basic seed cleaning and sampling. I’m also collecting some initial data for a major soil health study. It will be an interesting next few months!
