It Helps a Farmer Sleep Nights

The dug-out is full this year, and it is a beautiful sight. Last year, due to weather conditions, it was only half full to start the season. That's a scary thing for a farmer! Here on the Prairies we can be very hot and in a drought situation from mid-July to end of August. That's just when so many things need a good drink to fill out - especially squash, pumpkins and melons. We do all our irrigating from the dug-out, so having it full now just gives us a little extra peace of mind. And all farmers can do with a little extra peace of mind!!
