Although it's early (real early), it's perfect timing. A sprinkler system was installed this week. Yes, on a farm. Guess there is still a little city in us! Hopefully the new shoots of green grass will cover all the ditches quickly.
Actually, this is the last phase of our water revamp that we did this winter. The drought last summer caused us to take a serious look at where we needed water. With the number of animals we have, the limited pasture, and the dry summer months, we need to be able to water the grazing grass to keep it going.
Water hook ups were installed along the fence line to accomodate a walking sprinkler. To keep all this working we added two additional water wells. I'm so thankful we have good clean water
and lots of it!
The grass isn't the only thing springing up. Flowers are starting to come out from their hibernation. Some are even showing their colors.
This weekend we worked on the vegetable garden so we can get things growing in there too. I think the raised beds are going to work great.
And speaking of spring ~ the little lambs are sprouting quickly.
They have plenty of spring in their step too!
