4/21- Spring Explosion!

Here in eastern Washington we get less rainfall than Phoenix, Arizona. Irrigation is vital! (Jamie calls it “irritation”). Once the district gets water into the canals (it comes from Cascade Mt. snow pack via the Yakima River), we get busy setting up all our systems. We’ve got sprinklers, a big gun sprinkler, a center pivot and drip irrigation systems. Jamie races around laying out our drip and sprinkler lines (they’re over wintered in the barn), opening and shutting values, adjusting pressure, getting rid of air locks, repairing broken sprinkler heads…. Yup, irritation system is an apt name!
