THURSDAY THANKS: AUGERS

AUGER POST BARLEY DARTS

 

We’ve been thankful to borrow a tractor-driven auger.  In about a minute, it digs a hole that’s four feet deep.  It’s also wide enough to fit a railroad tie.  What an incredible time and back saver.  Over the years, Keith has dug many such post-holes by hand.  I’ve dug some small ones and it took me forever.  It’s hard work.  It’s even harder where there’s clay.  We still back-fill the hole by hand, but we’re not complaining.  We are grateful to be able to do it.  By September, our pastures will be quadrupled.
