Today we used a new tool, an auger. It drills into the ground to make a deep hole.
It’s a satisfying procedure, undertaken by my lovely, (camera-shy) husband.
I’d googled for a ‘hand tool to drill holes in ground’ and found that the right tool is an auger. I’d heard, and used the term ‘it augers well’ to mean ‘it’s a good start’ but hadn’t really realised what the word ‘auger’ means. I suppose that since digging holes for posts is often the first stage of a job, if it ‘augers well’ them that’s good going!
The holes were for willow, which we’ve planted in the flower garden around the path of thyme.
I’ve planted out sweetpeas by the willow arches. With a little luck it will be florally cloistered in a few months. 🤞
I’m excited to see how they grow!🤞👍💐😊
