Muriers are planted

On Monday our Murier [mulberry] trees were delivered, we have been waiting and waiting to get them as the ideal time to plant them is in November, so the local tree nursery told us.

We had booked John the dig for Thursday to dig the holes and do various other things in the garden that needed doing, but alas he couldn’t come as his new baby boy was born in the early hours of that morning [congratulations to him and his lovely wife]. So Kev and and I decided to dig the holes for the tree ourselves, we could only do the one side of the garden as the established tree have to be dug up using the digger and moved to a new home on the other side of the garden.


So dig we did and dig and dig and plant and plant until we hit a patch of solid rock which we had to break through using one of our industrial strength power tools. Just think of all the calories we are burning off I offered up to Kev in an attempt to keep him motivated.

We finally managed to get through the rock and plant the last tree and mighty fine they look as well.


Now just the other side of the garden to do, hmmm how long is male maternity leave?
