HEADLAND JUNGLE OF BENEFICIAL FLOWERS ON WOOD PRAIRIE FAMILY FARM. This time of year every evening that is dry has us out flame-killing potatoes when the wind has died down. Last night the clouds cleared out and that allowed the temps to drop down this morning to a cool 37oF.
This photograph was taken last evening from the flamer-tractor seat and shows the east headlands looking north. Last Spring we planted a 5-foot swath of Beneficial Flowers around the perimeter of our Organic Seed Potato field and also across two in-field alley ways to aid beneficial insect movement. Today the swaths have become jungles of diversity.
The most prominent flowers at this late season stage are cheerful Sunflowers and pink Cosmos. Caleb, Megan & Jim
