We got a lot of rain. A LOT of rain. The water table was really high and created little lakes around the farm. Time to convert more lawn to deep rooted plants!
The cool thing was how well our new water capture systems worked. It kept the water away from our buildings and put it in the ponds!
Here are pictures of two ponds. The biggest one by the house, and the “goose pond” (which the geese can’t access at the moment!) that was dry at the end of June. That’s over 4′ of water in each pond. Our other two ponds are also looking amazing.
To store that much water in tanks you’d need a lot of tanks! Ponds are awesome.
