We Finally Finished Up One Job —- Wednesday, June 23, 2021

While the heat baked and broiled outside

Terry and I finished making the rest of the MUCH NEEDED siphon tubes.  This is the oven where we bake the tubes, turning them into soft plastic

Terry takes them out (while still warm) and forms them in the perfect shape

Done!  We made around 50 or so, I lost count after a spell.

That evening we made several trips to the fields and added the new tubes in with the old ones, so we don’t have pack tubes from this area to the next!

YAY!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Wow! I always wanted to know how those tubes work. How do you get the water out of the ditch and into the tube so it flows into the furrow? Water doesn’t flow up! Is it that the shape somehow guides the water high enough into the tube so it gets over the hump and flows back down?

    I don’t know if that would make a post that would be interesting to everyone, but I would love to see how it works!
