Puttering around the yard
I thought it would be a good idea to measure the level of the well just to see what it is as I’m using springs instead of the well.
Well water level
I got the tin can on a string and a 100 foot tape measure. I drop the can in the well and it floats on the water and I pull up the can and measure the string. The water level is at 36 feet. It was at 30 feet last time I measured it so it’s dropped another 6 feet since then.
I got the well ready to drop in the well pump but didn’t install it yet.
I needed a nap after that so went in the house and had one and a break too.
Changing the car’s kayak rack a bit
After that I worked on my car’s kayak racks to make it easier to load and unload my kayak as my current method is tearing up my arm muscles and it hurts a lot.
So I rearranged things so I can load the boat without messing up my arm, I hope. I’ll test that out when I take my boat out again.
Cooking a chicken
I’d defrosted one of my butchered chickens so put it into the instant pot and cooked it with lots of broth as I want to put some white beans in with the chicken broth later and make some beans.
Dirt bike ride
A bit later I decided to go for a dirt bike ride up into the redwood forest as I wanted to check the water level of our water tanks from our springs.
Armstrong Valley Farm
Tank water level check
I rode up and checked the water tanks and the water level was almost to the top which was good.
Talking Tree Trail
After that I did some chair hopping until dark just enjoying the nice evening.
