Wowza! That's quite a bit,  though im sure one could manage a cheaper build if they sourced materials right... I hope anyway for my sake Haha

Thanks for quick reply, kinda figured that was the case, I'm still trying to iron out making my system work without watering piles... slow progress so far, and overall shortage of greens, jealous of your scraps streams for sure

Definitely one of the greats on permies, been following along for a number of years now, first pond definitely raving sucess!
As for second, I definitely think conical shape helped with quick seal, I also seem to remember you had a gallon per minute overflow or something going into their water trough, maybe constant water flow helped, removing larger stones as you mentioned also and I would think tighter fencing may help encourage more concentrated activity
I sometime get wood chips from tree companies that are mostly green leaves, maybe a load like that would help?
Feeding wet food scraps in the area?
Digging a small conical hole in the center (hand dug scale) to jumpstart things?

Question though, do you water your compost or is there enough rainfall in your area in combination with your food scraps, duckweed and chicken poo?

Been quite some time since this was posted, how did your first season go?
Also something I've been meaning to ask, do you think 2 strand polywire is sufficient on pasture after training or is betting required?
Thanks for sharing Dan, rewatching as I'm getting a handful of kathdins this spring, what would you say was the most difficult part your first year?

P.s. great job on the rocket oven DVD, best Wheaton video so far imho
