Long term homesteading project notes

digging a ditch during damp a day

We're starting to feel like the waterline project is finally nearing completion.

Yes...this is year 3 of digging the ditch.

I'm not sure how many total labor hours we've invested so far, but there were several days when it was just too cold or too wet for ditch digging.

We knew it was a long term project from the start, and with any luck we'll be rewarded with our first winter of the water not freezing on really cold nights.
