Martin Gourds Repaired

Maintenance Wild Plants & Animals

1/6/2019 – Lowered the martin gourds pole and moved the arms down to good wood so the one that has been hanging crocked for 23+ years is now level. Cut off the rotten top of the pole and install a new plastic “gourd” where one was missing. Dug down on the west side of the post and shoved it almost back to level. Braced it and the next day poured into the standing groundwater two 60# sacks of Sakrete.
