The digging was originally to prepare a space for planting, which happened. Yay! However, there was a long diversion from that purpose for bk2w and I to pull up big chunks of concrete from old fence posts. I hauled up a couple of them by hand, and he broke remaining, basically-unpullable bits up with power tools before we refilled the hole.
There's now a big of debate on the Skotos forums after my last article, which I choose to consider a good thing. Yay, discussion!
