With harvest going in full swing, it seems like the time of year when we should begin picking up pipe and storing it for next year –but that just ain’t the case.
Most of our vegetables are drip irrigated with groundwater. However, the pumpkins and fall broccoli are irrigated by sprinkler pipe from surface water.
Unfortunately, because it has been such a dry year, the water level in the pond has dropped drastically. So this week, we moved pipe and began irrigating off of the other well on the farm.
In this picture, Ryan is standing at the water level in the spring.
The farm is still busy and humming along. Last week Ryan and the girls transplanted lettuce and spinach in the high tunnel, so get ready for the fall crop.
