More work in the forest
California Dutchman’s Pipe flowers
blooming plum trees
I have a lot of wild plum trees just starting to bloom.
Digging the trail ditch for the spring water pipe
I hung around in he yard just getting some sun until about 1 when I hopped on the quad runner and drove it up into the hills where I’ve been working on my spring water pipe burial project to continue the work, digging a trail ditch for the pipe.
I had about a hundred feet to dig today if I could make it. I started here and continued on down the hill to just above that road down there where I’ll tie into the valves just above the water tanks.
Made it to the end
I made it to the end here where I turned the trail onto another pipe trail ditch from another spring which I can follow the short distance to the valve assembly just off to the right and out of sight.
By the time I go the trail ditch done I was too beat to place the pipe in the ditch and bury it, so I decided that was enough work for one day.
This is the valve assembly where my two spring lines meet just about the water tanks. I do have one other pipe line to do but I’m thinking next year maybe. I do have a lot of the other water line already dug, about half of it so maybe that part will get buried this year or maybe not. Each water line is about a thousand feet long coming down the hill.
Good spring water
Of course I got a drink of water at the valves before hopping on the quad runner and heading on home for the day.
Once home it was in the house for a nap and that was my day.
