Happy Independence Day!

Happy Fourth of July! We started celebrating as soon as the calendar turned to July. The rafting season has kept us busy and the challenge with water (good grief) has taken us for quite a ride this summer. So much water in the river with big waves and fun times, and so little water on the farm. We will be drilling a new well on July 8. Fortunately we have a 2,000 gallon holding tank that brings water into the house for now. The old shallow well has just given up and the less than 1 quart per minute just couldn't keep us all watered. Thanks to Mike's Water Truck, we recently refilled the holding tank. The cool nights are keeping the garden growing at a slow pace, but with nearly 100 degrees predicted for today and it seems summer is really here. Here's to celebrating life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness everyday!


  1. Summer is fun but not when its too hot.
    Good luck with the new well. Hopefully it will keep everyone well watered this summer.

  2. Hope you had a great 4th of July Kari! Good luck with the new well, I hope all goes smoothly for you with that job.
