  • Flooded Flower Fields | Green Gate Farms
    out and bright rudebekia beginning to pop As you can see from this image a colorful bouquet was coming your way But the rain came first And wouldn t stop Eight inches of water fell in just a few hours at our River Farm and my gauge spilled over at the Urban Farm Counting inches soon felt pointless as mini tidal waves plowed through our fields As you can see from this day after quickie film our flower field is a wreck We had just finished planting ageratum gold stick and zinnia and were getting ready to put in ammi sunflowers basil and snaps We had wrangled the certified organic paper mulch that I ve been so proud of it s uber sustainable and annoyed by the slightest breeze can spell disaster into place Finally I could sit in the chair by the fields and envision the stems coming together as planned more blues and whites stronger scents lots of variety Instead rain became a torrent that darn paper mulch swelled up like a thirsty towel twisting into irrigation lines dragging across beds crushing plants in all directions What a mess I am so damned annoyed And more rain is predicted This week I will harvest what remains but I suspect we may need to put next week s shares on hold We ll see Stay tuned and stay dry About Green Gate Farms View all posts by Green Gate Farms May s Monthly Meat CSA CSA Newsletter Week 10A No comments yet Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Comment Name required Email will not be published required Website Make A Donation Fundraising Websites Crowdrise Become A Farm Supporter First Name Last Name Email Address Photos on flick r Helpful Links Join the Meat CSA Manage Your Meat
