Trees, fencing, making mulch, BEING ZAPPED by my Electric fence.. NOT NICE!



good morning everyone Saturday morning it is the 29th of June not done and we've got a lot of plants to plant today and for some reason Billy's licking the top of them miniature greenhouses so you can see here on the side of the deck that I've got a bunch of fruit trees mature fruit trees that I bought and so I've got four chestnuts for chestnuts for quince for apricots two nectarines plus I've got the additional chestnuts which I didn't plant last time so we've got fifteen trees 15 or so trees to plant today so I've laid out the chestnuts and there's not one behind just there and I'll grab that's right hazelnuts I'll grab that chest up there in the corner and we'll plant that also because it's a big tree and then if there's any time left over from all the planting I'll get on and do the next series of posts for the fence but I'll cut back intermittently during the day I'm just watching these clear patterns roll in with this front that's coming across and there's some really really interesting lines in the cloud day and really strongly defined it's like there's a slope there's an inversion layer in the cloud okay so I've I've got the all the trays in a wheelbarrow full soil waiting and it keeps on drizzling off and on so the weather's changing but I've done some trimming of the spruce and the older at the front and a vacation Mellanox long as well and I'm gonna put them all through the mulch ah to get one more onto the garden so that will be my task as a next hour or two laughter also wait for the rain to really come which is not too far away anyway we'll get back to it well good afternoon everyone so I've had a bit of a big day I've made a absolute ton of mulch from all the branches that you saw earlier I've still got more again I'm just now bit naked because I've done a fair bit today yeah I've got all these to plant tomorrow I'll just have some energy for tomorrow as well so what I've done today is I've dug seven holes four trees one apricot two apricots three and four part of them mulch them use the weed whacker all the way through this area here to trim up this hill all nicely mulch tall the apple trees planted out the three other hazelnuts so I've now got a pod of five in this area here and as you can see I've also done three more fence posts so I've dug those holes pick them up carry them over fun of them tamp them down so they're all nice and nice and lined up as well so that will be the top part of offense and they'll be there still pick up in between and there'll be one on the corner there another one there so it's all coming together the other unfortunate thing that I just found out was that I have an a deaconess rat so I have a Australian bush rat it's eating the roots of my chard and beetroot and mango Wizzle so you can see every now and then oh that was the electric fence ah yep it works far out oh that's why you have a little flashing light everywhere damn good that you heard that anyway that's what happens to the wombat every time he comes near it he gets zapped and anyway so the other one was I'm not zapping the rat and the rats getting in there and the rat is eating large amounts of rootstock of my chard and mega Wizzle and patron so I'm gonna have to lay some traps some large rat traps with peanut butter seem to work quite well ah liven up your life in the electric shock great anyway all this compost will go to good use all this vulture should say so large piles of it it's probably – 300 kilos there I've still got all those branches to do and plus I'm gonna start trimming up most of these waddles and new clips probably tomorrow as well they're gonna be extending the fence down further so I need to take out that Ridge of scrub to increase the amount of sunlight I get into the area because most whales are going to continue down the hill here so because this will be my food first hill and anyway it's all it's frustrating to have to redo fencing because I hadn't you know if you can do yourself a favor if you're ever going to do any permaculture or any you know large Gardens try and plan it ahead of time don't do what I'm doing we're having to redo things it's because I'm learning and I'm teaching myself by watching other people and the reason why I'm redoing most of the fencing now with heavy-duty timber is also to give myself the ability to grow berry vines very close to that fence line have a very fine mesh along that fence line and then hang a net from the top of those posts out so I'm going to grow berries along this and so it's there's a reason why I'm doing what I'm doing and having timber is a lot easier than having steel for mounting little hooks – you can just gently screw them in and then you can really make it nice and neat and tidy where with steel you've really got a either drill and weld or have self tappers which rust out eventually anyway so these timber stumps should last 2530 years if not longer there I've seen these at my aunt and uncle's place down the south coast lasts my lifetime so I know they're very good in the ground so anyway a little update for the afternoon and a little electric shock from the fence as you heard and I won't be doing that again because that really does hurt because that is a very very powerful electric fence it's designed for a 15 kilometer run and it's only doing about 200 meters so it's it's got some guy it's a pity I can't put that on the front gate or the front fence and watch people light up anyway I'm going to chill out now and hopefully watch a couple of videos of other people on what they're doing and get more ideas and then implement them to continue my planning in my preparation have fun everyone we'll talk soon
