Willow Creek

I took a walk down Lakeshore Path today, and scoped out the early fall flower scene. Conclusion: I need to brush up on my plants! I'll bring my flower ID book into the office one of these days. I saw some smartweeds, lettuce, goldenrods etc. that I was unsure of. I turned around at Willow Creek, and noticed a crabapple full of "ripe" fruits just past the bridge.

September Bloomers

The only notable that really "starts" blooming in fall is October lady's-tresses, and blooms through this month! Though, the plant guide labels it as "mid-Sept." so I probably won't start seriously searching until then.

Bluff Creek

We took a return trip to a site we visited last year - this time, with success in our searching for a rare flower!
eared false-foxglove
Further on our travels, we found flax-leaved aster.

We finally took a walk around, and I noticed Cornelian cherry dogwood fruiting.

In a prior post, I shared a step-by-step of getting started once you had a HTCondor account. Now, I'm working on my own workflow. So, for me, I've already packaged up my R and I can skip to Step 2 of creating a DAG. What I'm trying to do today is get multiple jobs running *per each folder* in the DAG. Specifically for me, each folder is a bird species, and I need to run 14 models for each species. How/where do I specify that?

I'm confused also because process.template (which seems to replace the submit file for chtcjobwrapper) already passes "yyyy" which seems to be an internally defined variable. I don't know how to mess with that line.
