Now that Seth has graduated,
A 40 foot long, 7 inch deep trench needed to be dug.
The soil was pretty bad and unforgiving.
So Seth dug and dug
and dug some more
while others also dug and scooped out dirt
following Seth's relentless direction to keep digging.
Jim worked on assembling sprinkler pipe.
A second 60 foot trench also needed to be dug.
Eeesh. Scouts are good people...
even if the pick axes are bigger than they are.
Is that three boys I see letting a girl dig with a
pick ax while they watch?!
Another older scout with more muscle arrived to
save the weary crew.
Everyone's mood improved
and the pace picked up.
100 feet of trench is a lot of trench!
Jim can fix anything.
Or in this case, assemble anything.
The lunch break in between definitely helped.
A little more communication and
plotting/layout design and it's a go for a garden.
Good work Seth
