Pictures of the Week 17

We experienced strong downpours of rain last week and today seems to be another one of those days. It appears, however, that my place will never flood, the contour of the land and the walls of rocks that have been put up direct all storm water away. Other than that I was busy clearing a path and stocking the wood for next season. I also believe to have found a great source of nutritious humus which I can use to build up the garden soil. Hopefully, the gardens will be much more productive next season.

Needless to say that a trailer would be handy. But yeah, that's how I bring the firewood up to my site.
