Odd Floating Islands
Grow Trees, Vegetables
Near the City of Mexico is the
Lake of Xochimilco, nearly covered
with floating gardens, called chln
ampas, on which are raised flowers
and vegetables for the city markets.
They are formed of floating masses
of water plants, covered with soil,
and secured by poplar stakes. The
latter take root, and surround the
islands with living hedges. Among
the largest natural floating islands
are those formed by tangled masses
of trees and brushwood carried
down by great rivers.
On the Mississippi and its tribu
taries these Islands are known as
"rafts.” One of the most remark
able of these rafts began forming
in the Atchafalaya, one of the lower
arms of the Mississippi, in 1778, and
gradually increased until by 1816 it
had extended to ten miles in length,
over six hundred yards in width,
and eight feet in length. Although
it rose and fell with the water,
it was solid enough to support the
growth of trees, some of which were
sixty feet in height This vast ob
struction was finally removed by the
state of Louisiana at great expense.
