April 16th

Tilly and I went out to play ball, and she managed to partly fall into the hole I've dug in the garden.  She was chasing the ball - she knows the hole's there, but she loses her mind when chasing the ball (she runs into walls, too).  I'm being careful not to get her near it, but we need to figure out what we're going to do with the hole.

Most of the water's drained out of the hole, so I can see that it's nowhere near the French drain.  Don't know where that is.  The thing is, I've dug the hole at the deepest point of the water collecting, so we need drainage there... I'm going to dig a trench and see if we find the French drain.  If we do, we'll connect with that.  If we don't, I'll just fill most of the hole with gravel and put the clay soil back on top as a soak away.  We've dug down about 1' on the whole length of where the new drain will go, and we'll dig further throughout the week.
