Brenda, you are absolutely right! This afternoon I started to disassemble some pallets to feed my HK... I never imagined that in a single pallet could be a hundred 3 inch long rusty nails!
It's a BIG work and takes a long, long time.
I even thought of burying them with the wood, but I'm not sure I want to leave scrap metal in the soil for posterity.
Anyway I think I'm going to put the wood on top of the ground, without digging anything; I feel that this is how Nature works
If I'll remember to bring my camera I'll post some photos... If you like, of course
