A good solid base

It's been a weekend of extremes with torrential rain on Saturday, you may have heard about the local marathon where the runners that came unstuck in the downpour, silly b***rs i say for setting out in it. Fortunately i had an invite to watch one of our local rugby union teams and was able to view it from the comfort of the sponsors lounge how they managed to play a decent game in the weather i don't know, but as i would have been unable to get outside and get on with some jobs at home i was able to relax and enjoy the game.
That said today Sunday has been mild and dry and it gave me the chance to to get a bit more done at leveling the base for sighting my nine Carrot and Parsnip drums, i think you might be able to tell just how steep it is from the picture, it is now ready for back filling as soon as i can find the time and fill material, all the blocks were recycled from an old building that we knocked down on the Farm so it's an economy job but thats the best sort as far as i'm concerned.Hopefully i will get it finished by mid- late November leaving it plenty of time to bed in before setting up the drums early March. They should get at least 7 hours of sunshine a day next year which is more than double what they got in the old site.
