Bill, I thought your place was drier than that!
Please tell me more about this pic!

As for design stuff, I think we have standardized on sketchup for everything.
Yes, Ray, it would have been grand to have you here. The mission was to replace the injectors. The new truck is a different style - something that folks here could probably mend. Whereas the kenworth is something that is too big for us.

So when roots come into contact with pond liner or polyethylene it will detect that no water is in that material and so it will begin to try to find away around it. It's kind of like what happens when you take mature plant out of a flower pot and all the roots are tangles up but retain the shape of the inside of the pot. It's the same principle.

I would build up a stone and gravel base under the bales to give added security. Straw bales and cob have zero tolerance for moisture.
