I was thinking of all the different titles I could call this blog...
One was... Rock of Ages...
Back Hoe with Bill and Shovel
What's going on? Well, Celeste loves gardening... and gardens require water.
I might add here that they do have their own well and water system to handle whatever needs they have.
Our son-in-law, Victor, has been planning to put in a water system that will cover the major areas that will need watered. No small feat! This area of Texas is ROCK! Just inches below what little bit of soil is there is solid rock. The water line needs to be laid about about 2' deep... (I may be understating the depth)... but anyway... that big ole backhoe is essential for the amount of work that needs done. It takes a lot of digging and pounding just to break up that rock shelf into pieces that will fit in the backhoe.
Part of the line has already been laid and covered with dirt. About a dozen loads of top soil were hauled in to cover the ditches... all those rocks will be hauled away later.
There are several areas that will need a faucet... you can see where they've put in a fitting so the area next to the house can have it's own system.
In the very back of the yard, they might want a garden one of these days. This section isn't done... but you can see pipe laid... that little white line clear almost at the top of the picture.
More of the ditch... more pipe.... and.... more rocks!
Those little chicks I showed in a previous post will soon go into a chicken house... and... yep! they'll need water.
This is a huge project... it may have to be done in sections. But you can bet Bill & Victor are doing their best to do it right.
You Rock, Bill!
That's All For Today!
