We are finally getting an excavator. A mini one, but still. Super excited about it!!! This will speed up our earth works plans by years and enable us to do all sorts of projects we were going to have to put off and rent equipment for. Super excited!

Jealousy, I has it.

I am discovering that even very minor additions to my available resources can make a huge difference in my permaculture projects. Last year, it was getting a wheelbarrow, and later stumbling over a huge trove of empty plastic nursery pots and containers. This year, it's been the huge pile of wood chips from the tree trimming guys, which have provided me with a technology for mulching out weeds around my plantings where before I simply didn't have enough mulch to do the job anywhere.

An excavator, even a tiny one, is going to revolutionize your projects. Have fun with it!

I completely understand what you mean! We have a tractor and I'd been digging my craters with the bucket but a bucket can't compare to an excavator for digging. What once took hours will now take much less time and be much better done!
