Wow, I can't believe this fall went by so fast and I haven't posted in over 2 months. I've been doing Christmas craft shows every weekend, working at the auction barn, and have also been busy around the farm getting ready for winter.
We had a high-hoe in last week to dig a dugout for us. It will allow us easy access to water for the market garden and greenhouse. Although we seeded when it was really wet, by the time August came it was dry and we were hauling 3 1200 gallon loads a day to irrigate. It was dug in the draw where water runs during the spring run-off. The dugout will sit empty all winter, but by late next spring it should be full of water. Next spring we'll trench in water lines and add supply tanks at the garden. No more hauling water with the 3 ton!
