Summer 2012 in pictures

School starts tomorrow (yes, I think it’s way early too…now accepting sympathy cards and cookies.) and while hopefully I’ll still be involved with the researcher and lab that I worked for over the summer, my major involvement in the lettuce project is done. Here’s a quick picture summary of Mel’s fantastic, awesome, let’s-repeat-this-annually, summer.
The plot of beautiful, yummy, almost harvest-able lettuce. About to get poop-ified. Mmmmm……
I would like to take this time to lament my stupidity at not majoring in the boring subject of botany. Why was I so insistent on animals? Plants stay where you put them, don’t require you to wait anxiously by the phone to see how they are doing, and don’t take it personally if you need to stab them with something.
The wonderful PhD student whose dissertation will contain a lot of data from this project…..
Can you see the poop? Naughty little animal! Ummm….actually that would have been me, dropping poops in the field from little saran wrap “candy wrappers”.
My lab away from the lab.
Looking oh-so very scientific!
This was the major project I worked on, however there were many many others as well –> as time allows, and as those projects progress, I’ll share more on what a career as a public health veterinarian might look like.
