We finished moving the wheel line for the hay fields into place last evening. Around 5:30, we turned on water for the first set of the season.
Getting water turned on for the first time of the season is always a bit of a chore. From checking gaskets to make sure their still pliable to sprinklers and checking to see if the nozzles and levelers are good, to flushing the lines for any nests where a bird or a mouse might have made the line a winter home, to checking the engine for running order, it takes some time to get everything in place. Chore or not, the grass field will appreciate the water—it has been awhile since we’ve had any measurable water fall.
