Farm Well

This, folks, is a well on a farm. I took the photo crouching down and focusing across the pipe leading away from the pump. These go down about 600 feet or so and usually pump about 1000 to 1500 gallons a minute. There are several aquifers in this valley here, and that’s one of the reasons why Salinas is called the Salad Bowl of the country. We farm, you eat. The next time you buy a bag of salad in the supermarket, remember this well.
