Irrigation Weekend.. part 1: organization

After many weeks away from farm life, I am re-entering gently.

The community that has formed here at Dancing TreePeople Farm has organized the greenhouse and barn tools and started the early spring seedlings.   I return in time to see the perennials drinking the last of the spring rain. 

It is time to set out the irrigation lines.

Being away for so long means that I do not know where anything is.  With a gentle spirit, I've spent the day poking through the barn, the toolshed, the garage, breezeway and one of the greenhouses to seek out the irrigation supplies I will need to get the plants water.

The plants are not seeing any water yet, but at least I know where everything is.  It is nice to be home.
