On January 27th my classmates and I went out to the Orchard to look at the quality of our soil.  Our orchard is in poor heath and in bad shape

So we decided to go dig 3 holes about 1 1/2 feet deep. One hole more up hill the other up more but on a flatter land and the other one going down hill. When digging the lower hole we found big blocks of cement. When we did the drainage test it was very well draining. As well the higher one up hill was well draining and big rocks coming out of it. The high one on flat ground had less rocks and took several hours to drain. Doing this we have a better idea of the quality of the Orchard is.  We think it is bad quality because it was badly taken care of and could use some fertilizer
