We spent all day Monday…from 9:00 in the morning until 6:00 in the evening (after irrigation and before irrigation)
You see our canal water is so full of dirt that settling ponds have to be dug; allowed to have the water flow into the pond, and the dirt to settle out, then the pond is dug out in the Spring.
Not to waste the dirt, or let it blow away in the ever-present wind
We load and haul the dirt to different spots on our farm. Putting the dirt back into the SOIL of the ground.
A long day sandwiched in between the other stuff.
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
I like the way you put the dirt back into the soil where needed on the farm.
It’s hard to see it wasted so we gather it up and use it again. 🙂
That’s a lot of dirt rotating!
Looks good ~
Lots of work. But it will soon be all back on the farm
Wow ….what a huge job. I’m sorry you have to go to all that trouble. Do you do that every year? Blessings to you both as you work so hard on your farm. Hope you are able to have the stamina to get it all done. I’m tired just looking at your pictures and reading your commentary. May you get some good rest afterwards.
Yes, it has to be done yearly. Every year…sigh
Well that was a days work for sure!
Yes… exhausting and then all the ‘other’ stuff on top it.
That’s a good idea using that dirt elsewhere … 🙂 That first shot is fabulous Linda
Thank you, Julie. Waste not as they say 🙂
