Savage Farming

Monday, July 03, 2006


But the wind at farm #2 made it much more comfortable than that. Up here on the hill the air is pretty still and the ground is light colored from drying out thus being between earth and sky is like standing in an oven.

The piggy pig bastards at the top of the irrigation ditch are hogging all the water for their lawns and useless (as in not even being used) pastures today. The fact of the matter is that they are just selfish sh!ts who have some hallucination about cooling off their part of the world by running as many sprinklers as they can. The stupid ditch walker put us on a rotation wherein the rich a$$holes further up the ditch get 4 days out of 7 while we and the rest of the unfortunates at the end only get 3. What passes for his reasoning was that when the people at the top weren't using the water on those 4 days some would be left over for us. But this seldom happens, instead people at the top steal water from us on our 3 days anyways and then the ditch is almost always completely dry during their 4 days. This old farm is so sad when the ditch is empty. Like a dusty old child's swing with one broken rope. Grants Pass Irrigation District, get your stuff together! Or die and get it over with.

Fortunately at farm #2 both of our landlords (2 parcels there) give us access to almost totally unlimited water. Charley and Pete, you rock! The cantaloupe over there
have reached the size of softballs, the watermelons are as big as eggs. The corn is tasselling and the first silk is showing up. Tomatoes are as big as golfballs. With the beginning of harvest still about 4-6 weeks off this shines well for a bumper crop.

Wishing you all a delightful day (except for the Byers and other a-holes at the top of my ditch!)


  • I really hate those people who water their lawns. What a waste of water! I hope you have a great Fourth!
