Terry is checking the moisture in the furrows—we want the water to sub over under the top of the soil, deep inside of the furrow
You can see the top of the soil showing wet
It seems simple, doesn’t it? And in theory, it is; in practice, it takes lots of monitoring and paying close attention
Sometimes you can walk out on a dry looking row and suddenly sink right up to your ankles…sigh.
The water running beneath the dam is good…this is the water going to the next field — if the water was coming over the top of the dam we would need to start more tubes
The brilliant rays of sunlight on the furrows, in one of the alfalfa fields
It was so pretty, the glow of the rays, the sparkle of the water, the rich green of the alfalfa plants coming together in a perfect way.
Then when I looked up, in the bluest of blue skies, a sweet little bird flew over-head
The work is hard, still nothing to hide from,
I truly could not ask for more.
From my world to your heart,
