This is our pump house for the big spring At The Farm.
We have removed the winter protection for the pipes
and started clearing around the spring.
Two snakes lost their lives during this spring cleaning.
They had wintered under the tin over the insulated pipes.
Bev always says, you got to muddy things up to make them clear..
so we did.
We stopped the flow at the dam and started cleaning.
This backs up all the water in the spring
when we release, the water clears out any debris or mud
we have stirred up.
Blanket moss and water cress are removed from the main spring.
Son-in-law joins the work crew...Thanks, Luke!
We remove the stoppage of water and let nature take its course.
We do this about twice a year
and our water stays crystal clear.
