So today we took delivery of our Tractor Accessories and got everything in place to start preparing the land for Planting tomorrow.
The first thing we had to do, was learn how to use the tractor properly… with this mastered our new bits were a doddle to fit to the tractor, if not a little time consuming to move to the storage spot on the field.
Tomorrow we will be out with the “Whoppa Choppa”, we only chose it for the name, but it does have a purpose! Cutting down the brambles that have grown up on the field where it hasn’t been used for a good few years. After a couple of days we will follow this up with some root breaking and then ploughing, finally discing the land and then building lavender ridges and weed matting.
Some pictures of our first day are below, we’ve got our work cut out to start planting on April 24, but it will be happen.
Don’t forget we would love for you to come down on April 24 and help us with the planting. For more details click here
