Field Notes
We found our plant, there is a great abundance of it here in this area. The weather is cold and plants are going through seasonal changes. The plants around it are overgrown and brownish tan color form the cold. The air is cold and crisp. The Wild Carrot plant is now concave, like a birds nest, and the seed have become raw. Surrounded by Milkweed, the plant is growing in large clusters. We are surprised because there is a lot of it and we didn’t expect to find this much.
