Well it`s been crazy weather floods and cool temps. Guys are still working hard clearing as much as possible without destroying graded ground. Test hole looked positive. Loads of red clay. We did find two small strips of sandy loam on a west facing low hill side. Should have plenty of good working materials to move over to the poor spot. The dry creek finally has a small flow of water coming through from runoff hills and monster rains.
That`s interesting Dave I had never heard of oaks leaching toxins into the water. While I do have tons of white oak, it has all been harvested and the the root balls are either burning or buried. Good to know though for future projects.
It's always nice to see progress on such large scale. Do you have an idea of the shape you want?
Rusto we are seeing the shape of the land and where we need to pull good clay dirt from first before setting anything in stone. We have discussed doing staggered hill side ponds that water excess will drain to dry creek bed in the foothills.
