We were going to rent a trencher so we wouldnt have to dig it all up by hand, but then we realized that was going to be about $100 so we decided to dig it up by hand to save the $$$. It really wasnt that bad either!
Sarge sure was happy with the freshly dug up soil! He kept laying in the trench and was so happy we were digging up all the cool soil for him and he didnt have to dig it up himself! It did get a little frustrating after a while when Sarge was pushing more and more dirt back in the trench and the chickens were falling in because they were trying to find bugs and worms and the goats were stepping on all the dug up dirt and moving it back into the trench...not to mention the shock, awe and excitement of our children!!
