We've a lot of very poor land at our permanent site. Coppiced heathland &
recently commercial forestry, we have removed most of the Corsican pine &
needle drop & the heath is quickly recovering.
We discovered a B&S powered rotovator on Freecycle & after finding it a bit
of petrol pipe were delighted to find that it started & ran just fine in its
jerky clutchless fashion. It didn't dig very well though & we all had a go
at punishing our shoulders until someone noticed the blades were on
It was quite a better digger after that & we churned up a plot, digging in
several bags of cow poo. It will be a vegetable garden as soon as we can
figure out a way of keeping the rabbits away, bearing in mind that we are
only there for two days in every month. Anyone got any bright ideas about
natural rabbit putter-offers?
