Meitheal is the Irish word for Gathering – but usually it refers to a work party. This time the meitheal was at our place and we planted trees. It was muddy and a lot of fun and many trees were planted, mulched and fenced. We expect to be enjoying them for many years to come. Ok, here are some important website links. Please check them out.. Here’s Tim’s amazing guitar machine.. here’s our online store where you can see some of the craft things we make and sell.. and here’s our Patreon page where you can see more of our plans and dreams..

    Always wanted to know that spiky grass/weeds at 2:43 if goats would eat it? Because everybody know goats might eat strangest things, so thought what about those weeds? thanks

    Would Black Walnut trees be good in your climate? When I was a boy in the 1950s, the transplanted Irish dairy farmers in NY state would grow them so that when they were ready to retire from farming and handoff to their children they would sell those trees to the local mill as their retirement nestegg. Also while I am asking questions ( new to your site) you said you grew turnips to feed the horses. Those turnips are delicious and seem to be wasted on those beasts of burden. Do you not eat turnips? Do you also eat tripe?

    When is a good time to plant poplar trees and where can the slips be sourced. I am in east cork and have been planning to fence my place the same way you have ( without the meitheil unfortunately! ) and also wanted a scattering of trees inside the fence line?
    Great video as always, relaxing even when ye are trudging through the muck!

    It's just all fun, fun, fun for you two isn't it?

    I saw you do this before, but still can't believe you do it … stapling the wire mesh to the corner post, then CUTTING IT OFF!!
    The proper way is this ~ take the mesh right around the post, strain it to itself, drive staples halfway in so they keep the horizontal wires at the correct height on the post but the wires can still move, then cut each wire separately (leaving a LONG end) and tie the free end off tightly around itself, so the whole thing wraps right around the strainer post. Anything else is just pretending!
