A Story about Soil! by Sally Stackhouse 5/3/17
The shadows became longer as Bert dug his patch of soil. He loved getting in amongst the earth, it felt right to do it by hand. Tractors and new technology was great for those huge fields but it was much nicer to get back to nature and do something yourself.
Doris would be so pleased to have this piece of garden double dug ready for her. She wanted to plant a salad crop and maybe a few herb plants. Doris would be due back from the local garden centre in a couple of hours, so he’d better crack on.
