6 GG Yorkies Sieved Some Soil
There's a lot of very clay-ey soil at Heworth Without. They've extracted tonnes of the stuff from installing a new outdoor gym and wanted us to sift the soft stuff from the clay to top up the level of the boggy field.
Nikki 'hit-it-with-a-hammer' Gover stuck with what she knew, attempting to mallet the clay through the sieve. She did see some success but Rich and Stuart quickly discovered that the double-person shake was the most efficient sieving method.
Meanwhile, Max was enjoying sieving out interesting items such as acorns and seeing who he could throw them at.
All the unsievable rejects were loaded into wheelbarrows and used to fill the tiny trench left by the installation digger. The clay was an excellent filler once it was stomped in, and excellent at filling our shoes too.
We finished up with a thorough testing of the new gym equipment!
