we dig a big hole

March 30, 2010

When Bruce said we were going to rent a track-hoe Immediately I thought the worst “warning- only. funny. to. Drew (O.F.T.D)”.  I Got really excited though when he explained to me that it was to dig/renovate an existing stock pond.

Erica’s uncle Max came down to do the digging while Bruce ran the tractor and I assumed a management position.  It took all of  four days to make a huge mess and create a really big puddle.  The pond is fed from one of the springs in the wild area and has two different levels because the ground sloped a lot more than we thought (Who needs a transit? these suckers).

My personal favorite event was plugging the leaking dams for the ninth time just to have all the water leak out again in the morning.

The day after it finally filled with water, some mallards took up residency, wildlife in action, hooray!
