What’s sustainable farming without water?
Sean has been working hard since Monday to build us a farm pond. It’s too wet to work the fields and the weather has been too good not to work. The pond will hopefully act as our main water source throughout the season. It is a type of impoundment pond built into the slope to collect the water that drains from the hill. Sean has been using the top layer of sod as the retaining wall and lined it with the heavy clay soil dug out from the higher part of the pond. We are very excited about this new addition to our farm!
By the way Mr. and Mrs. Murphy, surprise! And Happy Easter!
