We are finally getting some well needed rain. By the end of this day we will probably wind up with over three inches. This is a good time to test your farm's ability to catch moisture. If your ponds are filling up quickly and the springs and creeks start running during or soon after a rain, much of your good rain water is leaving your farm. Under Holistic Systems we take many steps to catch as much rain water as we can. We like to see the ponds begin to fill two or three days after a good rain. This is why we feel that many draughts are self inflicted.
