Irrigation update 9

Another week has passed and steady progress has been made. The irrigation is now completely installed on number 10. Next week they will start work on #18. The new system is totally computerized. Work was done this week in the shop setting up all the controls. One added benefit with the system is a new lightning detection system. We will now have horns located around the property to sound an alarm if lightning is in the area. This is much better than sending out Pete Murray with his air horn. When lightning is detected it also shuts off the computer to avoid any damage to the components.

A new water slide?   No just a cover to keep the seed  a little warmer and stop erosion.
