Hill Farming

Making a Mountain?

The little men in velvet jackets have been busy over winter and the sheep have eaten most of the grass and gone home to lamb.

So it’s time to get in the jolly giant to rake the molehills.

There, that’s better — that’ll soon grass over. Note the newly laid hedge!

One hour later!

Brand new molehill!

What is the point?

  1. The way I look at moles and gophers here, troublesome as they are, is that they aerate the soil and bring nutrients that have stratified in the lower layers with winter rain, back up to the surface. And I collect their dirt for flower pots and gardens. 🙂
