Despite the threat of thunderstorms on Wednesday, after a day with every season's weather, it really wasn't too bad on site today. We also expected the orchard ground to be saturated, but it seemed to be well drained for digging.

Continuing with our training sessions, two more 1 x 1m testpits were measure out in the field and deturfed. Since Terry's meeting with the organisers of the future project that involves digging of testpits in lots of communities around the county, we were informed that, rather than trowelling down and recording the depths of the the different contexts (which was working out at about 20 -30 cms), it was considered more reasonable or practical to excavate and record at 10cm depths.  Terry provided some training literature for everyone to take away and read, which also reiterated how to fill in context record sheets correctly.
