Four Forks

Today was a day for the use of forks around the college. Ady and Graham worked on the herbaceous border, lightly forking it through to tidy it up.

In preparation for the spiking of the banks today, Simon and Joss spent a few hours yesterday mowing them to reduce the height of the grass.

With the grass a lot shorter, Callum joined Joss on the banks to spike them with a fork. Carefully balancing, trying hard not to slip over on the steep angle, the fork is pushed into the turf and gently pulled out so as not to disturb the roots. By the end of the day the calf muscles will ache, but a few more hours will be needed tomorrow to finish.
