Spade rehearsal in the vineyard on 1 April.
Spade sample. A cube is stung from the ground and dropped from about 1 m height to the ground. The cube disintegrates. Then the soil is crumbly, well rooted and thus rich in living things.
An earthworm emerges from the crumbled cube.
Kaputte Pfähle werden im Weingarten getauscht. Dazu wird ein Loch in den Boden gegraben und der neue Pfahl in die Erde gesetzt.
The compost heap is now doused with EM (Effective Microorganisms) so that the microorganisms can still do a good job before being applied in 4 weeks.
In the vineyards now broken piles are exchanged, wires stretched and disused vines collected.
