Flower harvest

Above, salpiglossis "painted tongue". Not the greatest cut flower 'cause it's so small, but it's one of my favorites.
Harvesting for dried flower bouquets, in case frost wipes out the fresh ones. These are different varieties of statice.
Celosia, "Burgundy Supercrest" and "Orange Temple Bells", for dried bouquets
Partying down in the flower field....
A last look at the full flower field. That afternoon Matt came in with the mower and cut down 85% of the field. He disked it later, and today he's sowing cover crop, moving irrigation back onto it and watering. We've saved a small portion to finish up the final month of the CSA deliveries for the season.
