Marking out the Orchard

Today’s task was to stick sticks in the ground to show where the fruit trees will eventually be – a great way of getting a good feel for the final look and size of the paper plans. Luckily for me I had a couple of volunteers in the forms of Smiler and Jay. I think it’s probably the first practical use of maths for them both (what is 15 feet add 12 feet?), but so much more fun than sitting in a classroom when you get to hit a piece of wood with a mallet at the end of it!
