After the weather beats it down some and the pond fills back up. I'm hoping It will be a small island for some banana trees and elephant ears.

This is the tractor i'm using. It might take me a little while but it will get done. The wife left for the weekend with a full tank of fuel LOL. She was a lil surprised when she got home.

Heres my latest picture. The pond is still drained down a little bit so I can dig it out more. I left my mower in the picture for reference. It still has a lot of work to be done before it looks nice again but it will happen.

Tractor has been broke down for little over a month now. Just got it fixed last night and the wife is leaving for the weekend so some progress will be made. Can anyone tell me the easiest way to put pictures on here. I normally go thur imgur but it a hassle. Can you put them straight from your cell phone on here?

I just figured out a trick today! Take a screenshot of your pic, crop it, save and upload from your phone! In the attached I intentionally left a upper border where the screenshot was cropped.
Game changer for me!
Edit: You can't really see the crop line so maybe just screenshot and upload.

open the image from the posted link and copy the url address.
Then go back and edit the post.
Type..."[img]" (without the quotes), paste the url address, and then type "[/img]" without the quotes. save the edit changes and it should appear like this...

Actually the brackets after the link have to have the forward slash IN FRONT of the img.

so it would be [img] http://blah blah blah.jpg [../img]

without the dots in front of the forward slash

That's a big expansion there. I might add 1/3 an acre. I'm hoping its 3/4 by the time I'm done

This is a free expansion! The property is not far from town and our valley has great topsoil the dozer guy needed for several large landscaping projects. Touched base with him last night. They will be back soon to finish shaping it and connecting to the main pond. With 1100ac of watershed we need a much larger pond. This will make it about 2.5ac.


How are you going to know unless you try!

NW TX 2ac main pond fed from 1100ac watershed going through 2 2+ac sediment ponds. 1st filled 10/2018

Wet week but got in when i could. I got the damn on the right side raised a little. It might not look like much. On my little tractor I bet I made 150 loads of dirt to make it. I'm tryin to raise my damn up bout 3 feet. I still have a long way to go on the other side.

I feel like a mouse just nibbling sometimes. When I look back a picture from when i started it seems crazy. I started all of this cuz i had a low spot next to the pond that was always wet. So I figured and just expand it just a little. So much for that idea.
