We have been really busy as usual. Brian has been helping our neighbor Derek on building his huge garage. I have been doing quite a lot of painting.
We got our waterline fixed a buried back in the ground. However we still want to figure out how we can keep the erosion from eating away at our property.
Yesterday a lady from University of Arizona “extension program” for Cochise County came to take a look at our land and talk about ways to slow down the erosion. She said it was a very interesting piece of land and she wants to try to help us. I’m not exactly sure what that entails as of yet. We are going to try different things though. One of the things we will try will be check dams. We will also be doing water harvesting. Setting up cisterns and water tank catchments.
We had planned on our next project being a large carport with additional solar panels. It is starting to get cooler now so our solar hasn’t been a problem. Of course with the monsoon season being over we probably won’t have to worry about the erosion until next year but we need to get started on things because it’s going to be a slow process.
I know I have been bad about keeping up with the blog. I feel like no one reads it because no one ever leaves comments. I will continue to update it. Just in case people are reading it and don’t feel like commenting that is ok. Thank you for your continued support. Hopefully we will have some more videos soon. Bye!
