Broken mainline!

April 22nd, 2021

An irrigation mainline broke in one of our fields.  We had to dig it up and repair it.  Jasper and Noah helped their Dad and Grandpa repair it.

24 hours after repairing the mainline the irrigation is up and running again!



Icicles on the pivots

While the daytime temperatures are warm, we’re still getting some cold nights.  The sun shining on the icicles on the pivots in the early morning is beautiful.

Happy Geese!

We have a gaggle of geese enjoying eating the grass in the hay field closest to the Columbia River.  And… while they’re eating they’re also adding fertilizer!
