The Hundred Acre Woods Gets Bigger

Or smaller, depending on your point of view. As the farm had only sixty cultivated acres on it I called it the hundred acre woods. As of today I finished planting flax there and only came up with 45 acres. So that means there are now 115 acres of "woods" although a good percentage of that is now under water. Every slough is full to running over. The field was always cut up in small pieces. Well now there are more smaller pieces. Folding up machinery wings and transporting from one patch to another is getting old. When will this excess water disappear? If my grandfather and uncles, who lived an farmed there all their lives, came back and saw it they would be amazed


  1. No doubt, Al Gore would link it to global warming and shrinking polar bear habitat.
