Gardening, Hiring Help in the Garden, How To

Hiring help in the garden episode 3

Well….This is getting exciting. The keen garden labourer returned.  There was still debris in the ground.  I had dug over the entire plot 30 years ago…twice and got out 2 skips of rubble.  The section at the end only got one dig over, in a hurry.  The grass that had been down there was always poor and the ground hard and lumpy. I knew it was going to be hard going in this bit of garden, hence the need for help. This chap now took to the task with a vengeance.  He constructed a giant seiving system out of an old fire guard, several spades, the legs of a dead table and a grass rake. That started to take care of the filtering out of the rubble, but he excavated a trench that was remenicent of a Time Team excavation and has discovered so far: one wheel barrow, one tin bath and a timber shaft of some kind. Tune in next week to find out what it was.   — Wendy
