digging hoe, beche, binette

by pasdelabas

We’ve started digging the plot.  DD has taken the lead, a farmer from Ghana, he is showing me how to work the garden using my digging hoe.  This was bought in Spain from a Chinese shop.  It is a very different way to work the ground from the ways I have learned.

DD works across the soil in a system where the mound he is intending to create is the width of one person’s reach with the hoe.
