  1. Wow, the into music was way too loud, and your voice is way too low.

  2. In the USA we call those things “crowbars”, liking the ends to a crows feet.

  3. Id worry about using pallets in food gardens. Alot of pallets are treated or carried harmfull and dagerous chemicals.  And yes treated lumber or contaminated wood leaches out over years.  Ive personally had non bio arsenic poisoning just from working with treated lumber.  I would definitely look into the pallets manufacture and what was carried on them if you intend to use them.   I use scraps from home builds no treatments and all is reliably clean.  Dont get me wrong though I love the project.

  4. Hi Have anyone tried to pound the nails in instead of Pulling it out. I think by pounding it you can avoid prying and cutting.
    Let me know if anyone tried it.

  5. Amazing, I like it!

  6. Nice job mate, that is the very fellow for me !!

  9. Did you say ‘plastic to keep the worms out’? Why? Are aussie worms different to UK ones, which are valued for the contribution the make to soil quality?

  10. I can’t believe I made that mistake. I thought that I was meticulous with that type thing. I must have been drinking.

  11. No, he said weed fabric to keep the weeds out & another time he called it WeedMat. We need worms here too.

  12. btw black plastic sheeting which many use in place of weed fabric, (& despite it being sold at garden centres), is generally not good for the earth – causing sterilisation of soil … It is useful for long-term eradication of weeds via solarisation if ur climate gets hot enough & if u can leave it alone in situ for more than a year at a time … I’m not that patient , as I don’t have enough other land to keep me occupied.
