Watering at the Farm with Gilmour

This week has been quite warm, humid and dry here in the northeast - and there is only a small chance of rain expected over the next few days.

Because of this typical August weather, the sprinklers at the farm have been very busy. To keep the many trees, shrubs and plants well irrigated until the next soaking rainfall, we use many hoses, nozzles and sprinklers from Gilmour, a Madison, Wisconsin-based company that’s been manufacturing watering equipment and solutions for more than 65-years. I use several products at Bedford, at Lily Pond in East Hampton, and at Skylands, my home in Maine.

We recently received a new batch of supplies - just in time for all the warm weather watering. Here are some photos.
