b'Item #6089Bicycling with Butterflies$19Outdoor educator and field researcher Sara Dykman made history when she became the first person to bicycle alongside monarch butterflies on their storied annual migrationa round-trip adventure that included three countries and more than 10,000 miles. Equally remarkable, she did it solo, on a bike cobbled together from used parts.Upon my arrival the first time at the Native American Seed farm, I thanked Emily a 2nd generation farmer, the network that had connected us, and the monarchs that led me there. By going native, the farm team lets the plants tackle the hardest questions. Native plants, unlike non-natives, have adapted over millennia to survive the challenges of the land, without intervention. Texas natives can cope with the hot summers, the hungry herbivores, and the soil particular to Texas. They dont need pesticides, irrigation, or unnatural fertilizers. They work with nature, rather than against it. Their presence balances their ecosystem.The monarchs understand this. Native plants are the glue that holds their migration together. While other farms spray away the milkweed, Native American Seed embraces each plant and their monarch suitors. I saw more monarchs on a farm tour with Bill than I had in the two previous days of riding.Item #6069Range Plants of North Central Texas $39More than just another plant identification book. Good, relevant and practical information on values and management of each species. It is more of a manual or handbook rather than an ordinary field guide. Landowners will become especially fond of the book, which contains useful information about grazing value, wildlife value and management tips. Ricky Linex is a country-boy botanist and a skilled professional all wrapped up in one big package. He has made the study of plants his passion for the past 30 years. A genuine land steward will combine his knowledge of the land with an appreciation and respect for the land.
