So I'll start digging. And when you plant this plant the hole shouldn't be too deep so my ground is a little bit hard, it takes a little bit more effort to do it. So you need to know how deep your hole should be. So you take your spade and measure it about, so it's almost as deep as my spade, not quite. So I need to go a little big deeper.
