Summer is all about one thing:
Water for the crops
(which I will tell you about in another series)
and Mom keeping her flowers and stuff wet.
And Dad keeping the farm crops growing.
The Life Blood for the Farm!
This water stuff doesn’t come to end until late August or early September.
It all depends on how fast the corn matures
and when the last cutting of alfalfa occurs.
For Mom, the watering of her yard comes to a hault
when the farmer next door stops watering his fields.
Water…there is more to it than meets the eye.
Water, liquid Colorado gold ~
Good series, Cai-Cai ♡
Yes it is! WATER the life-blood of the land.
Water and farming go together like peanut butter and jelly. Once, I almost stepped in a puddle. Just sayin’.
Love and licks,
You did a wonderful job describing how important — and how precious — water is to the farm.
Water the stuff that makes everything GROW! TLC Cai-Cai
You are so handsome TLC, yes water is real important!!
Thank you, Mom says that all the time, so I must be. TLC Cai-Cai
Charlee: “That sounds like a lot of water!”
Chaplin: “We generally try to avoid it except when we’re thirsty and then we go get it from the bowl.”
Charlee: “Oh and of course when we want to go stare at the fish tank.”
Chaplin: “Oh of course. But that’s water under glass, not on us, so it’s all good.”
That is all good! TLC Cai-Cai
