More to do...

The new ditch bank vs. the old one.

Notice the color difference of the grass on the ditch bank.
The water level has dropped at least 2' since the start of the project.

While we finished harvest last Tuesday morning, we have stayed busy performing maintenance on the fall machinery and various other jobs. We even started the harvest crew back up and went to work helping a friend wrap up their harvest. Yesterday we finished the final 30 acres remaining for our neighbor and today we will move the machinery home we hope for the last time this season.

To-date the ground has remained too frozen to chisel plow. We are still hopeful that we can get in and till the remaining 230 acres around Ashland which we intend to grow corn on corn on.

Bedolli Excavating has arrived at the Williamsville farm to begin our ditch cleaning project. This project is a partnership with the adjoining land owner to widen and deepen 1.5 miles of drainage ditch. As you can see from the pictures, the work they have already completed has lowered the water level by a couple feet.
