Water from the bottom beds flows into the pump back ditch where we then transfer it back to our main reservoir to reuse. The means of transfer is through an above ground/under ground hose. The pump below pumps 12,000 gallons/minute.
A couple of farm boys wait for the hose to fill up with water.
Watching the water empty into the main pond.
After a couple minutes of watching, the boys settle into their favorite pastime - throwing rocks.
I can't help but look around at all the fall textures in nature.
Rural life and working outdoors affords us plenty of time for seeing the little things nature has to offer like this grasshopper Peter spotted in the sand.
One more look at the giant stream of water before heading back home.
I hope you enjoyed another tour around our cranberry farm.
