The orchard was plotted out the other day and despite being one handed, I decided to start digging the holes today. Even though the post hole digger is here, after last week, I am a bit scared to say the least, so out came the shovel.
Digging one handed is a bit tricky so I decided to enlist some child labour … I mean help.
Once the holes have been dug to about 500mm deep and 500mm wide, I will backfill with cow, sheep and alpaca poo mixed with the dirt. This will sit and decompose away for the next few months ready for the bare-root stock! Only 2 holes dug so far, the help is a bit slow, but fun to watch 😉
May need to invest in a ripper as well…ummmm more toys to hurt myself … I mean work with 🙂
