Losing a valve stem slows things down a little. Two days later and $155.10 lighter, the tractor rejoins the working equipment.
There is a dry ditch behind Marcy's that fills when it rains. Hubby is widening, deepening and clearing some thorns from the main stream.
Bev is helping, supervising, then has to do all the hand work. Can you imagine how long it would take to clear this ditch with a shovel?
The dirt is scooped for distribution into planting beds which will have to be done by hand.
The bed of the dry creek is deepened, waiting to be reshaped by the next rain. The soil waits to be hauled where it is needed. I know this isn't beautiful but three short years ago, this entire spot was filled with tornado twisted trees and debris. It has come a long way toward being Marcy's beautiful back yard.
...and the hand work begins.
The most wonderful part is all this happened while I was at work!
