Spent a morning digging around where the buried well was supposed to be, and, miracle of miracles, found it. Now I suppose we have to find someone to see 1) is there water 2) is it any good and 3) how deep it is.
This has taken on a new urgency given the ongoing drought. Still no appreciable rain. Prospects are dire for the corn, wheat and potato crops this year. So it´s just as well that I haven´t made any progress to date on the veg patch.
The weedy mound of infill removed, the pasture is in a lamentable state. Frankly, I despair. And the sward was once so beautiful.
There is a new, unidentified weed. Not many, so I refrained from cutting.
Now that we´re nearing the local fiestas and V has some time off we hope we have some time to enjoy them.
