The piece of land is about 8 acres and spreads itself around! At the thinest part is where the river is and the building which is called the Centre is up top. We have not stopped working on this land since mid October 2013 and still there is so much more to do, years of work to do! Still much tidying needs to be done and although we have a good shredder it may not survive if we use it for all that needs to be done ( a good few years worth is what we have). So I have found an industrial one which we can hire, this will be done in the next few weeks. Then we will get more help in digging big holes for phase II trees and landscaping the South garden.
Just to clarify Zone A on the map is an interesting, super rocky area, where Cypress have been planted and a few Pines and Figs. Time needs to pass to understand what else will happen in this area. Zone C is an amazing area with very little stones in the earth, easy to dig by hand and has a fair bit of sand mixed in the clay.
At Ceratonia trial and error goes on and this is to be expected, what gardening and learning about a very new terrain is all about! Plenty success too and that is what keeps us going, along with the abundant wild plants that we have documented over these past months.
