Number Crunching Cherry Trees
I really need to start getting the Cherry Tree's into the ground, with 100 of them to dig holes for and plant it was going to take a bit of paper work and number crunching
I want to plant them on the inside perimeter of this field
following the fence line, I want them evenly spaced as well,
armed with a tape measure I measured the fence line omitting the gates,
once I had the total figure in inches dividing it by the amount of trees, I need the trees 46 inches apart
I got the first 10 in the ground
Then took a break to fetch the goats some branches, they do like to munch the bark off the branches and munch the twiggy bits. There waist lines are spreading in preparation for next months impending arrivals
while I was in the top woodland field I planted another 5 trees up there, Sol likes to supervise the planting.
Another break for lunch, I brought in all the old plant labels in to clean
After a good soak and the old pencil marks scrubbed off
They are now as good as new and ready to go again.
The rain came down this afternoon, walking Sol and doing the afternoon feed round I ended up soaked
Everyone was done and undercover by 4-30, the chickens had taken themselves in and I took the opportunity to shut the hatch to save me going back out in the rain and the Alpacas had taken to standing in the shelter watching the rain come down.
I think we are suppose to get some wild weather over the next few days, but whatever comes I have plenty to get on with indoors.
