I know, it's been a while. But lots of rain, and water-logged soil, slow things down. Plus, I went fishing.

Art needs room to breathe, and apparently machine manicured dirt needs hay to make it through the winter. This morning a truck arrived with a couple hundred bales of hay. They were unloaded on both lots and the crew proceded to spread them across the lower lot.

The hay covers the entire plateau and the drainage basin below it, as seen looking west towards the trolley barn, yet to be relocated. Looking north, from Elliott and Broad, the fall foliage and straw are signs of the seasonal swing to autumn.

Bales are spread across the upper lot, ready for spreading. The soil is still pretty wet, as evidenced by the truck tracks left behind. The steep grade, and the upper lot plateau, are quite apparent looking north east from Elliott and Broad.

Looks like they're getting ready for the rainy season. Hard to say what happens next, or when that will be. Stay tuned.
