CSA New : September 9
10.5 Inches of Rain
Most of the open space flooded this week. The grass in this picture is normally chest high. The milkweed is the first sign of recovery; it is beginning to stand up.
This is one of the new ditches on the farm lane. But it wasn't the only crater carved out by the rain. The Spoutwood crew spent Thursday morning patching the drive. If you didn't watch your step while walking around the 'puddles' you'd find yourself calf deep in muddy water.
This is Brian, Spoutwood's trusty handyman. The culverts were plugged with uprooted watercress. Brian was the only one who braved the cold and jumped into the creek to help drain the water. Thanks Brian!
