Preparing the Headland

As part of the challenge of reclaiming the headland from twitch, today was spent using a hired rotovator to turn the soil over, so we could pull as much dead twitch out as possible before sowing  the new wildflower/grass mix. After forking over a 10 feet length of headland in an hour I managed to find a local place to hire a rotovator, and I have to say it’s a fantastic piece of kit! The headland was rotovated, then rolled with a roller borrowed from farmer John next door. The existing hawthorn mix hedge was also trimmed back before rolling, so the dead twitch pulled up and the cut branches could be heaped up ready to set light to. The ashes will then go back on to the patch as potash.
