Made another ditch

The railroad plugged this ditch so I made another dead furrow ditch along the edge of the field to drain it. Just ran the back bottom as deep as I could and it's draining good now.


This is where I worked on the other ditch last week. In spite if almost 4 full days of rain it's much dryer than it was before I worked on them.


This is what that looked like last week from the other direction.


Supposed to be 10 days of dry weather, but cold now. Hopefully it will dry out some and not freeze so I can get the plowing done and get the rest of the ditches fixed.

"Railroad plugged this ditch"
Is there a pipe under the railroad? Are you saying they put a plug in it to stop flow through it? Why?

The ditch runs right beside the track and when they we're working on the track they dropped debris in the ditch. I'll call them and they will come clean it out, but who knows how long they will take to do it. So this is faster so I can hopefully get things going next spring.

Jon - Any thoughts to digging or blasting out a Pond to give all that water someplace to go?

Everything drains to that swamp to the north you can see in the second pic. From there it crosses under the railroad and highway and heads south 4 miles to the river. Any holes you dig would just fill with water til they we're full and then drain into that swamp anyway. This field will drain fine once the ditches are fixed and back in working order. They have just been miss used and don't work like they should. It will take a little to get things dried out so I can get them fixed up properly again, then I'll plant grass in them and make good water ways.

Maybe you should buy a small 2 bottom plow for making ditches. It would pull thru the mud more easily. Less likely to sink the tractor in the mud.
