Well…

When doing the winter fence project, we discovered a well in the hedgerow.  With no end in sight to the never ending summer, I decided that today would be a good day to pump out the well and check the recovery rate.  My neighbours Grant and Gerry helped out and Manuel made a quick appearance in a supervisory capacity.  We discovered the well is about a metre in diameter by nearly six metres deep.  Cleaning it wasn’t an experience for the squeamish or those with claustrophobia.  Anyway, we’ll check the recovery rate tomorrow but hopefully we’ll be on to a new source of water for my winter planting project!
