I woke Saturday morning and decided to rent a tractor and dig a pond.
Just in front of the yellow leaved willow trees.
Seven hours later and we had a new round pond that is about 50 feet in diameter and about 3 feet deep.
First I tilled the shape of the pond.
Then I scooped off the top soil.
Dumping dirt near an Irish Yew.
At about 1.5 feet I hit the "Semi-impermeable" layer of clay that lines the valley. The soil color changed to light gray and the ground got real hard. The boys were excited all day inside looking out the windows towards all the tractor noise,...
Uschi came out and shot across the "yard" to the big pile of dirt.
Uschi was excited !!!
He zoomed back through the shallow hole.
I'll show you how to drive this thing,...
Vladi checks out the transmission of the sleeping tractor.
I think this should be a little deeper.
Vladi checks out the dirt pile.
The dirt goes here,...
Uschi kept running along the top of the dirt pile.
V & U chased each other around the pond as Tanji watched from a distance.
