The Aged One was very pleased to tell me when I saw him at the market that he had repaired the steps that provide access into the small stream in front of our orchard. He's 'repaired' them before but not really made access any easier, so I thanked him but didn't really pay much attention because I wasn't expecting much. However, when I went down there I discovered that he has completely rebuilt the steps, plus made a place to stand in the stream. This means I will be able to use the water much more easily. I may have to bake him a cake.
Technically this is probably illegal, but the stream still flows through (until someone upstream pumps more than their share off to water their vegetables in the summer).
