That shovel is no good.

It was hard on our tools and hard on our bodies, but it was a simple pleasure to do this job with my sons Mark and John

Preparing a new block for planting some cherries this winter.
0.5 of a hectare
Some ripping just completed, this area was ripped by a bulldozer 2 years ago, when old trees were removed
Our soil type is a shallow, sandy loam, Acidic, low PH (decomposed blue granite)
I applied 800 kilograms of Dolomite or approximately 1.6 tonne per hectare
480 kgs of Natra-min Hi-Phos or approximately 1 tonne per hectare.
and 400 kgs of super phosphate or approximately 800kgs per hectare onto this area for soil preparation before planting this winter.
This is a 1981 Valpadana tractor RS 6055 it has done some hours for us.
Finished block after harrowing below
A recent photo taken at our grandson Dax's first birthday on the Sunshine Coast. A beautiful part of Australia to live.
We have had good rain since our last entry, weather is turning colder now.
Best wishes to all.
