Our lovely neighbour leant us a new toy last week!!!!
So….. The path…
It took soooo much work and time and back ache I feel it deserves a before and after shot!!!!
So that’s two, no wait we dug one out… Three gates, a tonne of brambles and nettles, tyres, rocks, silage bags, mud, more rocks and rubble to give traction for the gator, digging, hedge cutting, strimming, digging, barrowing, gatoring, oh yes and a mound of cow poop!!!
BUT we can’t now get gator into the back field without running the sheep gauntlet!!
For the last few weeks of visits James and I have concentrated our efforts! post failed diggering at sorting, clearing, digging, rubbleing etc the path from the yard into the field behind….. This field is no longer orchard field as James feels we have too little flat land to devote it to orchard….. Orchard and I have been moved to a steeper part of the rough land next to this field….
It has been hard and messy work…..
Silage bags that come out of the ground like hankies out of a magicians sleeve…..
Old rusty metal work…..
Old bits of fencing…..
Well I’ll let the pictures tell the story….
As well as the building work last weekend James hired a mini digger (too mini for the job he wanted it for as it turned out)
As I left to go into cardigan to look at tiles he was a happy husband playing diggers and building a path down into orchard field from the yard!
Upon my return…..
A digger minus the treads on one side!!
Luckily our neighbour at the top of the hill used to work on diggers so he came up and fixed it…..
James had about another hour or two of digger play before it happened again…
He gave up! And luckily our neighbour came back just before we left to fix it again before it had to go back to the hire company!
