August projects

Spent the day on the Cat loader scooping out peat from the swamp in front of the house and moving it on shore where I am building an earthen ramp along-side the swamp. The ramp will be for observation of birds on the pond. I think it is already almost ten feet high at the apex.

Things go well early in the day before the soil wears out. As the day goes on, things get more muddy. Finally, about half-way through, I got good and stuck. Because I was behind an immovable stump, it took a little finagling to get out.
