This is the depth of the well in “le jardin d’Aurillac”. A useful supply of fresh water for young fruit trees and, if the water proves to be clean, for vegetables and soft fruit.
Young fruit trees need twenty liters of water once a week during the summer months, I was told by the Urban Orchard Project when we planted a pear tree in London. With a well containing around eight cubic meters (8,000 liters) in our garden, we have more than enough here in Aurillac to water the twelve trees or so which could be planted in the coming years.
Next steps: have a sample of water analysed to see if we can use it to water salads and other strawberries. Also check at what speed the level of water comes back to normal after we have drawn let’s say a cubic meter of it from the well.
