Grit Magazine, Digging Deep

Grit Magazine Water Well

The Grit May/June issue is in stores now and features some enjoyable articles.  Starting with a guide for fruit trees, so if you planted late winter or early spring this article may be of interest.

What I enjoyed most about this issue was the personal stories sent in from their readers.  One in particular shared his story about selling Grit when it was a newspaper.  I was telling Robert about this write up and how it really took me back to a much simpler time when almost all people enjoyed reading.

Robert mentioned he also sold the Grit Newspaper and shared his own experience.

In this issue you’ll also learn how to mend clothes, this made me smile as well because my grandmother mended our play clothes and socks to help out my parents.

This was something she did when raising her family through the depression, a skill that never left her.

I often think, “How will the younger generation survive hard times?” as these simple skills tend to be frowned upon because we live in a world where entitlement is front and center.

I guess those who know how to go without and live simple will do just fine…

This brings me to Digging Deep and article I wrote about our experience drilling a well shortly after we moved onto Quail Grove.  It was exciting when we hit first water around 25 ft.

The first part of the article is my favorite because it goes into the path we traveled researching before diving in.  These are details most well drillers will never share.

Find this issue of GRIT at Barnes n Noble, Walmart and most rural area grocery stores, Tractor Supply and of course you can always subscribe online here.

    Hello from Michigan Carole! This article was great and I think the pneumatic drill method will work great for the windmill pump we want to install on our little farm. I’m having trouble finding the drill itself; maybe I’m searching with the wrong terms. Could you please point me in the right direction?
    Thank you,
