3rd course of tires= done!!!

We are now officially 1/3 of the way through our 9 courses of tires!
Pretty soon, we'll be placing our four 1,700 gallon cisterns behind the thermal wrap.  These will hold the rainwater we'll collect before it is filtered and pumped into our house.

Chad's dad was a huge help and came and dumped dirt with his tractor to backfill the tirewall. 
The beginning of our orchard: 6 apple trees, 3 peach trees, and a cherry tree
