What Is This Stuff

A complacency had descended sometime during the fall. The lack of rain had kept the ground, paths and roads around the farm rock solid. It was easy to tread, trek or tractor every each of the farm.

The moisture we have experienced in the last few days changed everything.

There are puddles on every road and there is water in the swamp again. Ditches around the barns had to be re-opened so the run off didn’t sluice through the barns, water bars on the logging roads need to be shored up again and drains under roads need to be dug out and opened up so the extra can run toward the river. And now we have mud.

This magical stuff that plagues the farm is back. Next order of business will be to rock the paths with the most holes and spaces where we thought were well rocked only to find that the rock has sunk beneath a good layer of goo. Now it feels like fall has come to the farm.
