Sometimes I feel a little like Sisyphus there are so many rocks to toil over out at the farm. They seem to appear exactly where I need to dig a hole. Today I prevailed yet again though and after 2 and a bit days with a crowbar the monster was beaten.
A bit of She’ll Be Right bush engineering – a tripod made from 3 star pickets and wire to hold the come-a-long.
Well it’s out.
Added some planks in case something breaks so the rock doesn’t fall back in the hole. Also so I could lower it and roll the rock up the hill (not really but the story did start with Sisyphus).
The spade is for scale, the hole is a bit over 900mm deep. It is going to take a few bags of concrete to fill that hole.
Well there is the bugger, the WD40 is for scale
Only one hole to go!!
That’s is a lovely rock. I think you need to start a dry stone wall it will make a terrific keystone.
