We planted the first 40 poplar stakes today along the (almost complete) fence line beside the large house gardens. The ground is still soft enough to plant in and we still seem to be having enough weekly rain to keep them happy. This line will be kept trimmed to about 2m to encourage them to hedge (hence the close spacing) to provide wind shelter for all the veges.
Here’s helper Marissa with another bundle of stakes to go in. This next shot shows me on the pogo stick device that makes the holes just the right depth. We make our own fun in the country.
