of Pits and Ponds

Today we pulled the mosquito farm "water feature" out of the nook behind the mudroom. I had been unable able to tell how deep it was through the accumulated murk, but it was probably 20" in the deep end. We filled it with old potting soil, rocks, and most of the sod removed to make the garden thus far, which worked out rather well.

As soon as it rains once or twice, I suspect we'll have a splendid ankle-turning sinkhole, but until then we can pretend we prevailed in filling it in with minimal struggle. Now that that space is not taken up with a pond, we can move our trash cans back there, which will make the north side of yard all the more attractive as we consider actualy hanging out out there on warm days.
