The heartbeat of a farm is
You can ready the ground, plant the seeds, fertilize, manage the weeds
But without water, nothing will happen
Although, we do get rain, in our high mountain desert region the amount of rain we get only sinks in about the width of a shadow
So yesterday in the gentle morning sunlight
The siphon tubes were gathered across each and every ditch, laid along the side with the orange dams and the mental dams; water was started into the pastures at the Upper End, the old Apricot Tree, and the horses’ pastures.
The water gurgling and glittering making tiny splashing noises as it rushed in a small wind to give life to seeds and a drink to thirsty little plants.
Thankfully, but late evening my computer was back in working shape.
Yesterday turned out to be a very good day!
