Step Three—On the Land
Once the headgate is opened, Dad and Mom have forked out all the ditches in use, then it’s time to start the water into the fields.
Water is never, ever wasted. It goes into one field and runs to the bottom of that field in a small ditch, which takes the water to another field.
This goes on until the last field of the farm,
then that water goes back into the canal to go to other farms along the way.
This happens over and over and over again until the water winds up in the Colorado River.
Water is never wasted ever!
We move to step four—keep watching this place for more interesting information about the backbone of our Farm! (and wonderful photos of ME!)
