Digging out holes is never a fun job.
\
My worst part was throwing the dirt to about 30cm over my head into the wheel barrow, and then not throwing it evenly, and the whole wheelbarrow fell on top of me.

I was more annoyed at the dirt I'd dug out coming back in, rather than the bruises.

Here are the WBs with vegies that were going to be connected to the FT water, but will now be on a separate system that I add fish poo to. The reason being that when it rained, far too much fine material washed through the geotextile into the water, making it very murky. WBs connected to the fish water need to be under cover to prevent rain falling on their surface. So for now I have 2 rectangular veg beds and 3 round fruit tree beds connected to a >2000l sump, which will only needing pumping for an hour or 2 each day, F&D. I currently have 5 beds with just river gravel + blue metal, 2 of which are planted out, which will be in the fish water circulation system, and am working on digging in another 5 in the short term. More will be added when I can afford it.

The ST is now buried and I will plumb it in soon, here it is after we dropped it into the hole I'd dug for it.

Hey Colum, is that a Freudian slip? 'God sized' kinda works for me :lol:
We need some before and after photos of the effects of all this digging - there must be some bulging muscles (or maybe some bulging discs :support: )

I've found with arduous tasks it best to have a friend to make the job go faster. Comradeship makes it all way more fun, plus the guy on top can spot you, or rescue you or vis vis. I find working alone to be a miserable affair on many levels. Alas, most of my project has been done solo, except the two meter hole in limestone, no way I could have done that in twice the time alone

I find a certain Zen like quality to digging holes alone.

Depends on the soil type, a sandy soil, or a soil that's gets flooded constantly, you'd need to worry; but a clay soil is usually pretty solid.

Plus the tank would have pretty solid walls already I'd imagine.

And don't worry about stupid questions (or being a girl for that matter), only stupid one is the one you don't ask.
