Fieldwork: Washout at The Tracks

We didn't get a lot of damage to our fields or properties from the torrential rains, expect for our piece in Swanton.  We call it "The Tracks" because you have to cross the railroad tracks to access it.
Note the size of fieldstones that come up in these fields.
Main fields have drainage tiles running to this ditch, but it is where the culvert creates a bridge over it that it had some major erosion.

You can see the repairs better here (the darker-colored earth).  We may have to replant some corn, but the soybeans are in.

It's been a funny sort of year, hasn't it?
