I have been accumulating field stone for several years [In NH they grow out of the ground year after year. Where do you think “Rock Garden” came from? ;) ] with the idea of building a rather elaborate dry set stone wall down by the road and up around the spruce. Well situations change and decided to move and the wall wasn’t built and there was a big ugly pile of rocks that rather hindered the “curb appeal” concept. So I decided one long weekend to pile them up or move them out. I decided on a smaller wall than originally envisioned. When it was done I wished I had made it a bit bigger because I still had several tons of rocks to move away. The main digging and setting took three days and I spent several more evenings chinking, back filling and moving the leftovers. It has survived a NH winter and three encounters with cars (that’s another story) so I guess I did OK. The new owners like it…. I think. I had fun. My friends think I’m nuts.
