Irrigate no more

Every year the irrigation has to be put away. We take the caps off the ends and run water through them to blow out all the mud and debris. This cleans out the main pipes.

We pull the suction tube out of the creek and clean that out. We tape buckets on the ends of the suctions pipe to make sure nothing crawls in over the winter.

We disconnect everything and cover what goes into the ground so it doesn't freeze.

And last, we turn off the electricity and cover the electric motor.

That's it, until next year. Show's over. Instead of looking at fields of lush, green grass, soon we'll be looking at fields of snow. That snow doesn't cost us anything, either!
