I rebuilt the well/cistern cap yesterday. It's no where as big as i thought it was. I am starting to think its a well and not a cistern. We picked up a hand pump from TSC over the weekend and it makes a nice and useful addition. I also picked up some plumbing supplies to try and hook my pump up.

I've been carrying 5 gallon buckets of water from the well to the garden. Typically have been putting 20-30 gallons on the garden.

I used to only like it fried, but have learned to like it grilled or steamed with some good seasoning on it.
Looking good Chuck! I'm not much for squash, but Teresa loves it!

But that's only because I added 1,000 sq ft to the garden. The part that really gets me is anyone can grow corn in Iowa and I've had two disapointing years trying to grow sweet corn?

Sounds a bit like our garden this year. Most of it just didn't give like I expected it to. Gets a little frustrating at times, but it all evens out over time.
Plowed the garden under today, another year in the books. This was a bad year for the garden. hope next year is better.
