The System works for her!
We have began to cut the finca but before the machine could be utilised we had a lot more rock clearing to do. Both of us lift any loose rocks and place them in the wheel-barrow, and any embedded and protruding rocks I remove with a pick, and add those to the collection. Once sufficient land is relatively clear Carol starts the machine. I walk ahead of her, as she cuts, picking up those rocks we missed on the first attempt, already we feel we are making progress.
The rocks we remove from the finca are tipped into the ´pit of doom´ which we had previously excavated in front of the stable block. It is a trench 60cm deep 20 meters long and 3 meters wide and will take some filling!
