After the walls were poured the weeping tiles were put in place and covered with gravel. Ken started to backfill then found out that you need to wait 28 days for the concrete to fully cure.
While we wait we level the clay in the pit. Hard, hot work. I understand now how it feels to be a prisoner on the chain gang. My least favorite job to date. Mostly Ken rakes the clay and I rescue frogs and worms who have unwittingly found there way into the pit.
