Heather, et al.=0AFrom rural Kershaw County, midlands of S.C. We also have =
had booming GF populations, at least three explosions this summer counting =
the current boom. Our fenced vegetable garden has kept the deer from eating=
the native passionflower vine that is taking over the garden since it appr=
eciates the watering. Also, we had a tagged male monarch (AAUS 044) on Sept=
. 20. He was in excellent condition, so probably tagged not far away. I did=
