Half-way there now…new pond coming soon and it is filling-up almost as quickly as we dig it, which is perfect!

Today…may be the last day for these boggy expanses. Soon we will transform them into deeper ponds with edge bogs, to provide more room for the ducks, geese, and other critters that frequent. At the same time, we will be creating a year-round water source for all. Stay tuned!
