Now that she's broken in, I can really get working.

    Now, I'm shopping for a post hole digger and later in the summer will be digging out a small (1/3 to 1/2 acre-foot) pond out back (with the FEL).
    Are you mucking out an existing pond or digging a new one?

    I'll be digging a new one. It is the low point in the property, roughly 3/4 of the way back from the highway. Currently, there is a creek (dry in the summer) running through it. Although the property slopes, on average 10% back from the highway, it is somewhat concave, resulting in poor drainage and very soggy soil. I'd like to remove enough soil for the pond to use for making the grade convex (starting with a 5% grade at the road).

    The I'm thinking 1/3 to 1/2 acre-feet based conservatively on the size of the drainage area (which is roughly 12-18 acres). I could make the pond bigger if I wanted, but this is a small property and I've never done a pond before. Starting small with this sort of thing and keeping my mistakes small has worked so far.
