We have found a site for our pond…. Initially a wildlife pond we think… Eventually maybe some ducks for it…..
Dig faster James it’s starting to fill up!!! We’ll line it during a dry spell… And we need to make sure it has a sturdy bottom banking so…..
So….. The path…
It took soooo much work and time and back ache I feel it deserves a before and after shot!!!!
So that’s two, no wait we dug one out… Three gates, a tonne of brambles and nettles, tyres, rocks, silage bags, mud, more rocks and rubble to give traction for the gator, digging, hedge cutting, strimming, digging, barrowing, gatoring, oh yes and a mound of cow poop!!!
BUT we can’t now get gator into the back field without running the sheep gauntlet!!
For the last few weeks of visits James and I have concentrated our efforts! post failed diggering at sorting, clearing, digging, rubbleing etc the path from the yard into the field behind….. This field is no longer orchard field as James feels we have too little flat land to devote it to orchard….. Orchard and I have been moved to a steeper part of the rough land next to this field….
It has been hard and messy work…..
Silage bags that come out of the ground like hankies out of a magicians sleeve…..
Old rusty metal work…..
Old bits of fencing…..
Well I’ll let the pictures tell the story….
