What ive been doing for the last month or so/ where did the water go?

Finishing Up

This is via Tiwa farms blog;  http://tiwafarms.blogspot.com/
Its been a wild spring into summer, people coming to the house asking for plowing, ditching, seeding, etc…on top if it all having to care for the land and children has had its insanity, so i wake up all hours of the night to write, work on stocking the village shop and or finish orders.
I figure our only worth is to inspire each other this is my way of inspiring my community to get up off there asses and create a new revolt, GROW SOME CORN IT WILL SET YOU FREE.

From radical fire fighter to farmer/ Ralph was awesome this year.

The spring tractor work is finished for this year.
We topped out at 87 parcels done!
Many of the people we talked with while doing their plot talked about “the old days” and how much more abundant moisture was. So after a little research, here’s the last fifty years of annual runoff records for the Rios Pueblo and Lucero.

WATER FLOW GRAPH 1.
Rio+Pueblo
graph 2

The graphs are similar because they’re from adjoining watersheds in the mountains above Taos Pueblo. Notice the maximum in 1979 dropping to a near minimum two years later. Then a two year rebound.  The other thing to notice is there is no normal in the sense of stability. Swings are sudden and the highs are seven to ten times greater than the lows.

Yes, there was more moisture in the last fifty years.

    The pictures of tractors reminds me of how I used to help my Dad drive tractor in our fields when we grew mostly hay. (Just a little bit of garden but more than I have now, my Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles had their own gardens as well.)

    Thank you for sharing the blog with us, good to know you are surviving all the work after that early snow.

    Wonderful job Aspen!

    Respectfuly,
    your friend Amy
