13.52 inches of rain is no math for Mel's Mix

Post  yosoypanadero on 4/30/2011, 10:34 am

I found this section of a weather article in Cincinnati (Ohio Valley) where I garden - and I smile because I am not a mono-culture, agribusiness-pesticide dependent "farmer"; my raised bed SFG with Mel's Mix - along with a greenhouse - are doing excellent in spite of record setting rain:

The soaking rains have ended for now (I see more coming soon) and the
river is below flood stage but the damage has been done. As we head
into May it’s becoming apparent that agriculture will take a big hit
because of =0&layer[]=1&layer[]=4&timetype=RECENT&loctype=STATE&units=engl&timeframe=last30days&product=observed&loc=conus]saturated soils
that are keeping farm equipment out of the fields, and excessive
moisture that can damage seeds trying to germinate if you did manage to
get them in the ground…and we’re talking about farms from the Ohio
Valley north across much of Ohio, west across all of Indiana, south
across all of Kentucky and then further west into Illinois, Iowa and
Missouri. All of these areas have had flooding and above normal
rainfall in the past month but the Ohio Valley has been hardest hit.

Back to the basics - communal, small scale, and diversified agriculture.
