When I posted the earlier version of our farm plan, I failed to take into consideration the trench that runs through our property caused by the spring. I also didn’t include the hoophouse! How could I forget the hoophouse?!
You can clearly see the trench running through the property that starts just to the right of the spring box and ends behind the big house. It is fairly deep, about 2 to 3 feet. We considered filling it in with dirt, but we need a French drain or some way to filter our grey water from the tiny house. In the future, it will be used to water the tree orchard and ornamental flowers but until then it has to go somewhere. A solution would be to just use this trench and save our backs and some money! I included two little bridges since it will block our walking paths from the parking spots to the tiny house and studio.
