Hi take a look at the close ups, the hose had a slow leak and cracked more when I picked up the hose, see the attached pictures. Did not get leak pictures since it was a sprinkler and was discovered at bedtime.

Noticed a wet spot on the ground near the hose connection, picked up the hose and it turned into a sprinkler.

Repaired the hose from the local hardware store, with a quick bicycle trip ~ 5 mins.

Did 200 ft of trail maintenance, using just a sickle. Wow these things are fantastic. Took way less time than I expected it would. Forget the clippers and the loppers, the sickle just works.

Providing a combined  video to show the improvement, first minute is the before, while the second minute is the after.

Built a Hugel at the 2021 SKIP event using an Excavator.

This wood came from various cut off left overs that where next to the passive green house or across the road from it.

Here is a list of what was planted:
Sepp Holzer grains
Crimson clover
Winter peas
Alsike clover
Common vetch
Red cow peas
White Dutch clover
Black walnut
Rye grass
Tillage radish
Sun chokes

The mulch was a mix of:

evergreen branches
wood mulch that happened to be right behind this hugel spot from a stump.
Sepp Holzer Grass dead standing harvest.
Nap weed
Sunchoke (transplanted)
