This morning myself, Ben, Geoff, Duncan and Harvey the dog took more materials up to Butterley. There are now 240 deer guards on site, and 290 stakes (I think). First day of planting is likely to be early to mid November, as the nurseries are not putting out the deliveries of trees until then (ideally, trees should be dormant for the winter before handling and transporting). We shared de-caff coffee, and some Foxes biscuits while we were up there. And Geoff and Duncan photographed lots of mushrooms.
|Ben takes a well earned break.|
