Those who homestead and farm know exactly what I'm talking about. If there is any way an animal will escape it will, piping will always break when stores are closed and you can rarely reach the friend that knows how to help repair. That's just the way it is and we all get by either by doing it your self or turning the water
off until your friend can come help.
I know few people that are experts that don't want money so I do the best I can. My husband had told me for years and I quote "I ain't no damn carpenter!"
I used a pick ax today to dig and lay a row of bricks to keep siding off the ground. May not be the right way but it works and it's level. Three pieces of siding done. Hallelujah! And it only took this old rusty body three hours to figure it out, cut it and get it done. I am working with scraps so don't expect home and garden. I am proud and when it is painted to blend some may never know especially since this is a seldom seen spot.
Not bad for an over weight rusty retired postal employee.
Then we began to play with rocks. This is the center rock for my latest hot new project. I am combining my water gardens or that's the plan. I have the tractor tire garden, and the water garden I built for Dad.
My brilliant plan, an engineering feat, is to have the water run over this huge rock down the natural channels into the re positioned tractor tire which will be buried on a tilt. This will then run into the larger garden and recycle back to the rock. Sound good? Yes. Sound difficult? Yes. Sound impossible? Absolutely not!!!
Where there is a will there is a way. The new location of this masterpiece will be directly beside the steps that lead to the Dreaming Porch.
If you have some digging tools and muscles, come on over. I will supply drinks, food, and music.
