I was glad that D left a couple of comments on my last post to give real details about what was involved in creating the berm.
In this photo here, D is advising his friend on the finer points of tractor working. Thank goodness D didn't notice my jaw dropping down to the floor when he said he was going to buy a tractor. That thing has saved us so much money!
I had more pictures and text in this post when I originally tried to post it late last week, but the Internet ate it, and -- well -- it doesn't really matter. It's just dirt.
