Yesterday Vince was out digging the hole to re-plant the apricot tree that was too close to the other apricot tree. I went out a couple of times and talked to him but wasn’t paying a lot of attention to the project. I walked out to the shop to get something out of the freezer and I noticed a hole right next to the house.
Oh, my goodness! What is he thinking? That’s way too close to the house. Trees should not be planted that close to the house!
There’s the water hose in the picture. How long has it been since I took an outside photo without a water hose in the picture?
The nice, black dirt he had dug out of the hole caught my eye. I walked over to see how deep Vince had dug the hole but no . . he isn’t planting a tree.
We have a leaking connection. Vince noticed the ground was wet and the hose has not been on so he knew right off the bat. It’s the line that goes over to the cows’ watering tank. Vince will fix it but it’s crazy that every time we buy a house, we have so much to do to “fix” things. We always get the inspections and things like this wouldn’t show up . . a water line that’s going to spring a leak 15 months after you buy a house . . it makes me wonder if when we sell houses, after we’ve done what seems to me like lots of “fixes”, do the people who buy our houses have the same issues?
I’m so thankful Vince is handy with stuff like this and can fix it himself. And, I’m thankful he wasn’t planning to put a tree in that hole!
