Here I have gathered all the vines and leaves from the Daigle-plant. I donít compost the material, instead I drill holes, 60 cm/ 2 feet deep, and put the material directly in the holes (soil solarization) mixed with soil, water and sometimes urine and pumpkin-juice. The walls between the holes are loosened with a spade. On top of the holes I put soil only. As you can see at the pictures, I make the holes with a handdriven soildrill (the diameter 22,5 cm/ 9Ē). Itís much easier to make deep holes with a drill than with a spade. When I make holes for deep-watering pipes I use a drill of the diameter of 7,5 cm/ 3Ē, thatís my smallest drill. I put all organic material from my garden, kitchen and my outside lavatory directly into drilled holes and the best time to do it is in the fall.
