Something Larger Than Yourself—Wednesday, March 22, 2017

The work goes on…first light –until way past last light– arriving back in the yard in a flurry of falling stars in the velvet night.

Yesterday Terry worked in the alfalfa field and I finished up raking the whole yard, all the flower beds, around all the outbuildings, and

(This is an old photo, but it gives you an idea of what I did yesterday)

worked on getting the canal bank ready for the water to come.  A huge job.

The fertilizer truck arrived around 7 this morning.  So now Terry is

rolling the fertilizer on the corn fields.

Water is supposed to be in the canal any day now.  We took a short drive around 5 yesterday afternoon, checking the canals above us to see where the water was…our lives revolve around water.

It’s a busy time of year, but a good time.  It gives me a sense of reaching out to something ever so much larger than myself.  Our farm, a small, vibrant island of life.

  1. That last photo is wonderful. We have clouds like that just now, but they’re dropping their load, so no beautiful golden light, and the storm drain out the front is full up and running in spate. The Wet is so late this year…

  2. J & D > We’ve been researching your part of Colorado – using Google Earth and Wikipedia. so now we knew something about ‘The Water’! But with this post we begin to understand the practicalities. Now to look up how water from tunnel is allocated and controlled! We have grazing rights, seaweed and peat. You have … The Water!
