Playing Farmer Brown

In the weekend I went out to my brother’s farm to help with some lavender planting. Form a learning perspective it was great. From a doing it, it was trying hard work. We planted 4000 small cuttings. After a couple of hours bending over to place each cutting into the ground every 80cm (you work in pairs so the plants are spaced 40cm apart), your back get very tired.

So while it was hard work, it felt good getting it done, and the rows look quite nice.

Attached is a picture of a similar tracker attachment to the one we used. But we where a little higher up, by ~10cm. The image was sourced from here.
