    Pond Foundation Advice?

    I'm currently looking at putting in a windmill aeration in mine. It's about 2 acres give or take. Aeration is needed to address algae bloom, weed control and water clarity. It works on the same principle as aeration septic system. Naturally occurring bacteria address decay. The higher the oxygen...

    Barn find, literally... Wife came out to the barn looking at my mess and said what are those? I said well, kind of looks like a pair of maple book cases don't it? Next thing you know I'm cleaning them off and getting them ready to become canning jar shelves.

    Wife says "Tomorrow is the big day" the wire hanging out of the bonnet gets connected to the electric co-op. I get 200 amp 220 volts to power the man cave, via new outdoor main.

    Old wash house sat here at one time on this 12 x 14 slab not far from the back door. Standing at the back door. Yep under the 10x10 deck is another cistern. I eventually would like to pump it dry and convert into a root cellar/tornado shelter. I'm going to have to cross it anyways when I bump...

    Got a lid on the first 12' x 18' and fenced in for chickens and turkeys. Used recycled tin that the previous owner, had stacked up on a long skid. I must admit I was a little intimidated getting my butt up there to nail down the tin. I didn't build the stalls, so I went over it real well and put...

    Sitting on the front porch this evening with my wife and my LED flashlight. We were watching deer come out of the corn field rows. I like the color of deer this time of the year their coats are red colored.
