Rock ‘ard…


Saturday 22 March, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Time to dig over one of the veg areas – soon it’ll be time to plant out the pepper plants for summer. Trouble is, the ground is already hardening up and this area hasn’t been touched since last April.

I tried the new garden fork that Uncle Baldrick brought over at New Years, nope, it didn’t do much at all. A pickaxe would do it, but too much like hard work.

So off I trundled to the artesian pump, a 2″ bore that goes down 121 metres (450′) to an underground river.




Using my newly buried pipe made the job a whole lot easier, and meant I could run a flat pipe right through to the veg patch area I wanted to soften.






After 3 tonnes of water, and 2 hours to soak, digging was so much more manageable 🙂

    I really do enjoy watching these kinds of pictures. It reminds me of missing what I don’t have, but would love to have. Mixed feelings actually. Mixed nostalgia with a bit of sadness.

    Still sounds like a lot of hard work to me. Take care! Hope nephew Duke is OK!
