This week has been very busy on the farm. Along with planting crops we have had our well recapped. We help our contractor to save on labor cost. But to finish the well cap he only had Osa, our shepherd, to supervise.
Custom welded cap oriented to the true directions of the compass.
Cutting in the stone to hold the metal cap.
Grouting and sealing
View from the deck. All the original stones have been moved to other parts of the farm.
Good soil and grass seed are next.
Signed, dated and the depth recorded for posterity.
The original hand dug well is still usable and is now safe.
