Ditching

There is an area near the new barn across the river where the rain that comes off the roof creates a wet area. It affects where we have to drive a rock road to get the hay to to outside feeders. While the ground is still bone dry, it is time to get a ditch opened up to dig in a culvert to divert the water away from the road.

Two men shoveling out a ditch.The bucket on the tractor loosened up the rock and dirt yet still we had to manually clean and straighten the ditch.

This day we were able get the culvert in and with the help of the tractor once again get the ditched closed back up.

More rock was dumped and smoothed over filled in ditch. Now we just have to wait for the rains to see if we did a good job.
