Moving Ground?

We have now had over 35 inches of rain here at Eden Creek Farm...this video shows how saturated our ground is. Watch how the ground rolls and moves like a water bed beneath our feet!

Jay & Kristine

My son Jay and his girlfriend Kristine came over to visit this weekend. October 3rd, Jay turned 22!

They brought with them there new dog (Handsome?) Not sure of his name yet...he is half Wolf half German Sheppard. He and Henry got along great.

The horses are loving the cooler weather...and the green grass.

We have gotten so much rain I have lost count of exactly how much. Over 25 inches or more in the last 4 weeks. The fields are water logged. One of our ponds that has been empty for two years is now overflowing!

Day 14 & 15

We planted our third round of Broccoli,Cauliflower, Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts and Rainbow Chard before the rains returns again!
Day 14 & 15 was spent trimming out the inside and putting on the front and back gutters...we finished the last down spout right as it started to pour. Rain again!!!! The weatherman says it's going to rain all next week...
