We were fortunate to get some heavy rains a few weeks ago and a few spots are holding water. This pond has a sign calling it Cat's pond, but this isn't Cat's pond. Now that it is holding water, perhaps it is time to name it!
When we still had the 32 ton excavator here, it could dig a hole about 24 feet deep in 20 minutes. So I dug a hole at the bottom of the pond to see if there might be water flowing a bit lower. I just found lots and lots of clay.
Down the road from Zach's pond, Evan's ducks are finding and improving a few small bodies of water. Not quite ready for livestock, ants must do the work of the pigs. Here, you see what happens when we do that work with vehicles. Want a pond? Build a road. Ha Ha! Everyone is excited to see some upcoming detailed topography of the ant village so we can better plan our earthworks, including our pond building efforts.
