Here Comes the PaddiesDecember 1, 2011
We have been working up to this day for quite a while now. The survey stakes are out. The sides of the field have been cleared back a bit and our giant white pine Christmas tree in the middle has been taken down. Now that all the prep work is done we finally were able to break ground on the paddies.
This morning we spent figuring out exactly how we were going to build the paddies and clearing the sod out of the way. Once we had the ground cleared we realized that the elevation change was to much for the first paddy because we had made it so wide. We ended up splitting it in half to make two paddies instead of one. There is another paddy that we will have to do this to as well. We will have to sacrifice some growing space for the extra walls but its not to much lost.
