Guess what we're working on...?

So here we go today's post is to see if you can guess what we are working on right now, and tomorrow's blog post will have the answer in the title. So first I'm going to show some pictures, then I'll give a bit more commentary on it.

This is my favorite new toy... even though it is not really mine, it's Silver's; and it is a masonry drill with a planting bit. I have to say I do like the planting bit for planting it goes right through the ground and loosens up everything in the process. It helped me get the rest of my garden in yesterday, in only a few minutes.

Here is Silver using the drill for loosen dirt we are digging out of this spot next to our shed.

This is the depth we dug at the deepest spot after one hour.

Here is the width after that same hour.

...and here is the length after one hour.

This is what it looked like after one hour:

Now, I realize that this is -not- a good image for this but it's the best I can do for now. After an hour of drilling and digging we stopped for a while.

This is what it looks like now:

Well considering, it is now afternoon the shadows help to show what it looks like better. We got it a little bit deeper, wider, and longer; we could not work as long as the air temps were 84 degrees and it is totally clear out. We are hoping to do more later after the kids head off to VBS.

Now, this spot we are working on when done will be; 7X10X6. It is a good item for every homestead to have and there are a few people out there that might not think you can do this work by hand. This will also be good for weather conditions here where we live. Another clue is we need to have it done before we put on the addition to the shed.

So... can you guess what we are working on...?

Be Well and Blessed Be...
