The Fountain of youth

As Long as I can remember The Farm has had a “spring”.  A place where water bubbles up through the ground of its own accord.   In the time of my youth(some 30+ years ago) it was a large marsh, filled with cattails and weeping willows.  It was a wondrous place for a kid, not such a wondrous place for a farmer, as it is situated in the middle of a corn field causing many problems and stuck equipment if one ventures too close.

Until now.

The Wind she is a Blowin

I woke up this morning to 20mph winds with gusts to 40….Not going up to work on the windmill in this.  Not going to happen.  So,  We have all this dirt parked in our garden and it needs to be put to good use.
