I know it’s not officially Spring yet, but there’s some sort of Spring happening – the sky is lightening, the wattles flowering, and it’s windy & showery & sunny – and even colder!
To prepare for Summer (!) we’re having a working bee this Sunday August 16 from 3-5pm followed by pizzas. The main task is to get some structures ready for the fruit trees and berries so we can easily net – and also shadecloth – them for when things get hungry, and heated. This will involve digging some holes, obviously best done when the soil is relatively moist and soft.
The plan is to bury some large rural polypipe in the ground with a pre-drilled hole at the upper end. Then we can slide the smaller diameter rural poly (also with a hole) into the larger one, line up the predrilled holes, put a pin or cable tie through them and there we have it … protection, hopefully.
Clear as mud? Come along, dig a few holes, and see if it works!
