Guess what we’re working on…?

Posted on

Now as I am making this a “guess what” post it will be like my Blogger post, but that is due to what I am writing about.  We here at Wolf Woods are working on a new project that we started this morning, and I will state the answer to the title question in the title for tomorrow’s post.  I am going to show some pictures then I am going to comment on what it is, I hope you can figure it out!

 

This is my new favorite “toy”/garden tool, and it’s Silver’s.  It is a masonry drill with a planting bit, and it really is amazing in the garden as I learned yesterday when it helped me get the rest of my plantings in.  It also is very good at digging holes in clay soil, that requires a garden pick to dig up.  the nice thing about this in the garden though is it works almost like a tiller does in turning the soil.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a picture of Silver digging into the ground next to (hint) our shed(home), I had to rake up the large gavel that was there first as we didn’t want to chance hurting the bit on a hit rock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the depth of the deepest part after an hour of work, we only worked on this for an hour this morning as we started after 9am.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the width after that same hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and here is the length after that hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is what it looked like after the hour:

Now I know this is not the best picture as the light doesn’t have the shadows you need to see it properly.  We did go back outside at about 1pm to do a bit more work, not as long as it was 84 degrees out and absolutely no clouds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So here is what it looks like after that extra bit of work this afternoon:

It’s a little bit deeper and wider, and.. oh that hoe handle on the side of the picture spans the  hole.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now first, the supposed finished dimensions are, 7x10x6.  This will be extremely useful for us here on the homestead, and also double with being good for our local weather.  We are figuring it will take us about a week at least to finish the first part.  We are taking what we dig up and raising a few paths we have up above their flooding depths so we can walk to our garden after rains.  Right now we have to circumvent the typical path to get to the garden if it rains.  We are hoping to get a bit more work done on it before dark, once it cools down a tad more.  Also please note that this is being worked on, on the side where we are putting up our addition; and that it needs to be done before we build the addition.

 

So… can you guess what we are working on…?

 

Be Well and Blessed Be…
