Well houses and wild hogs

October 31, 2010

It is ok for winter to come to Georgia now; insulation is up in the well house and some amount of freezing temperatures can now be tolerated. There are still some finishing touches to be done but practically speaking the project is 99% complete (paint not withstanding).

    The hog damage is a problem……….looks like it’s time for the whole hog offensive once more.
