Milkweed for Monarchs!

Wanted to highlight this great website by fellow garden blogger Benjamin Vought (The Deep Middle) advocating for the use of milkweed and other native plants to attract and support our native wildlife, particularly our endangered Monarch butterfly population. Monarch butterflies use milkweed (which is actually NOT a weed by any stretch) almost exclusively for food and to lay their eggs. Milkweed is actually quite an attractive plant, with showy clusters of orange, pink,  or white blooms. Check out http://milktheweed.blogspot.com/ for more info!
