I inherited 140 acres that my parent bought in 1965, so I decided to start this thread to show some of my farm projects!
Today was a small project in the picnic ground. Years ago I'd put a bench next to the pond to fish from, but I put it too close to the edge of the water! Using 3-2-3/8" chain link fence post for the front & two 1-5/8" posts for the sides: The lumber is CCA treated lumber from my 16' trailer floor that I recently replaced. Drove the posts 30" into the clay bottom: Post drivers are hard on my old hands! Finished the box with just a little slope towards the water: Then filled to about 4" from the top with dry clay from the road: Topped that off with dry black dirt that I dug from the same ponds several years ago: Seeded it, even though it's too dry for the seed to start.
Then, it's time to start dinner (noon):
My "help" doesn't always do much!
