First Flood of 2011

Starting off the new year with a blast…from the pipes. Damage was hardly comparable to the previous winter. That December (completely unsuspected) we had 3 lines burst over the course of the month. Talk about a water waste. We lost nearly 10,000 gallons. Oh my!

Fortunately, we learn. Having shut down the majority of the water for this season and inspecting regularly after our recent cold weather…only one flood to report. The party greenhouse had a section that was at least a foot deep…but the leak was capped and recovering within 24 hours.

Though I neglected to document the floods of the past-check out these awesome ice formations from the Farm’s First Flood of 2011.

And Happy New Year! May you be filled with the smell of fresh flowers and home-grown food!!
