Ok here we are at the moment we've all been waiting for, about to find out what the pottiputki is.
But first let's look at the entries;
said she thought it was a toilet digger. Great guess Christina! A digger, yes, a toilet, no.
thought it might plant seedlings. Yes!! Small trees are seedlings aren't they?
couldn't wait and Googled it. I don't blame him, I'd have to look up something with a crazy name like that too.
said something that makes holes for seeds. So close, not seeds but seedlings.
said a translation device that enables farmers to communicate with worms. No, but if you invent it, we'll buy it.
So this particular pottiputki belongs to Dave Griffiths of Geometree
These are the last of the 2000 or so little trees that Dave planted in our new potato paddock
And here we have Dave with his pottiputki.
Step one; He pulls out one of the little trees he is wearing on his hip.
; He puts the little tree into the top of the pottipuki.
; He puts the pottiputki where he wants to plant the tree.
; He stands on the lever that releases the seedling into the ground.
; He releases the pottiputki and stamps around the newly planted seedling.
; As he finishes stamping around the newly planted tree, he reaches for the next tree to plant.
We planted Tagatasti, five varieties of Acacias and Tea Trees.
We planted them as shelter belts, to create a micro climate and as most of them seed prolifically they will provide fodder for the chooks.
