We finished the Southern Stem Wall today. Joni told me it wasn't high enough, so I built it taller:
In progress. Why so many photos of a sloppily constructed wall? Well, I didn't really fully appreciate the amount of work involved. First off, all the rock is from our property. Gathered. Hunted. Picked up. Dug out. Hefted. Grunted. Hauled. All of it. Thousands of rocks. Set in mortar. One at a time.
