Finally after fussing the baby St. Bernard next door and a bit of pootling about I gained possession of the spade!!!! Alleluiah!!!! I snatched up the spade, loaded it into my wheelbarrow and left the men folk mulling over their newly dug ditch and Mum cutting back the cotoneaster on the front of the building. My mission was to find some the field growing baby trees and return them to growing in some of the smaller hedgerow spaces!! As I got into Big field I realised that the owner of the sheep tenants had been in a reopened the gate….. Sheep tenants and their lambs were all over the big field and the small field…… Hmmmmm Pup had come to dig trees with me….. However she was amazing and she just careened about fairly close to me and woofed a bit when the sheep got too bold and wandered over to investigate in the goings on in the corner of the field!!
In all I found down the one hedge line 6 baby field growing trees and replanted them in the gap between Big field and Small field.
I still need to start reinstating some banking here though, by chucking some rocks, of which there are many, and earth in here!!
James came to collect me after I had been gone for a hour or so and we wandered back to get some lunch!
