Time To Turn The Acequia On
On Saturday, March 12th, Peter, our oldest son, stopped by the farm for a visit. That day we walked the acequia as it snakes through our farm. We counted a total of six beaver dens dug into the side of the acequia. The beavers are a blessing and a nuisance. They are a blessing in demonstrating the richness and diversity of the land; they are a nuisance in that they cut down the cottonwood trees and their burrowing in the banks of the acequia can cause a breech and subsequent shut down of the whole acequia until the damage is repaired.
