Today we hired a guy to come mess up a lot of what we've done in the past few months, in order to run a water line from the corner of the house back to the one part of the garden we intend to water with any regularity: the kitchen garden. That meant pulling up a bunch of those bricks Bob laid a few weeks ago and digging a trench straight back through the lot. If you're wondering, yes, it would have been smarter to do this earlier in the game. Sometimes things don't go the way they should, you know? I'm surprised this is our only instance of any such backtracking so far, and thankfully it's not a big deal. And the end result is that there's water! By the kitchen garden! Hooray!
