We started the water on the alfalfa fields yesterday morning
It felt good to be back out on the land, picking up siphon tubes, setting dams, digging out rows
We’ve had a
tremendous amount of wind the last several days, which also brings with it trash from the harvested pinto bean fields
It truly feels good to be walking, lifting, shoveling, moving, smelling the water as it makes its way down the rows in the field, instead of an echo remembered
All of us were rejoicing/singing as we did our work.
The renters left the fields in good shape. No complaints there.
Still, it’s okay to send round and tell the neighbors, we are Back on the Land!
