More work on the duck pond
Work continues on expanding the duck pond. Much of the pond had already been drained but this evening, I used a bucket to take out the last of the water which I poured on the potato bed. I am now down to a thick layer of mud and silt in the centre of the pond. It is rather unpleasant stuff but needs to be dug out and put on the vegetable beds. That's a job for tomorrow.
