One of the bonus features of our new place is the 10,000 gallon catchment tank/water tank/cistern. Call it what you will, turns out it makes a great place for grabbing a 360-degree view of a good portion of our active project areas. We’ve made tons of headway just in the month that we’ve been there, but there’s still so much more to be done.
As a way to record our progress — and to invite you in to watch — I got the brilliant idea to create a “Tour in the Round” to track the changes we make. I’m going to aim to take a similar video from this spot on a semi-regular basis. Hopefully there will be visible improvements in our efforts!
I assure you, you are seeing an honest representation of the state of our yard, here; no special cleanup was done prior to recording. Buckets and tools scattered about is the state of things currently. My hope is that as time passes we’ll be able to see this property go from overgrown and unmaintained to a thriving, producing piece of land. And I hope that watching us strive toward this goal in our messy, non-linear fashion will inspire you to dig in and try growing some things at your place.
If you see anything you’re curious about, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll answer as best as I can.
