Been out doing the tree planting saplings at Sholing Valley study centre, was a dry day not too bad weather wise today, spitting after a break so done tree planting till lunch - there was lots of hard brick like soil to plant the tree saplings in and it was knackering.
can anyone guess how many I planted?
Also planted out an Acanthus and some Campion in their garden to look at in spring, it had a few bare patches last time we went.
lunch nice, then as the volunteer had brought our tyre planter back as the men at his work could not do it.
Was trying to finish turning the tyre into a planter really difficult one to do lots of muscle and strength needed, was trying to do it on my own for ages bit more turned but hurt myself a bit then help from others and we made it finally after a long time.
So that will be up the station some when and planted up, not trying one with a wheel rim in again too stiff and hard too do
not been that well after a bit of lunch and tyre wrestling rather icky, sick - not nice, resting now watching TV
