Over a three-day weekend, all my energy focused on completing the removal of the earth tractor ramp using only a shovel and wheelbarrow, I finally finished digging our fishing pond expansion! The next step is filling the new pond to match the level of the original pond to test for leakage and to determine where to install a second overflow pipe. Of course, there is a lot more work to be done, such as leveling the chunks of clay that make up the berm, spreading topsoil, planting grass seed, etc. Soon, I will dig out (most likely by hand) the earth barrier that separates the two ponds, releasing the fish into their new, expanded habitat!
