Fence Work

September 11, 2006

This years project - many feet of fence.

That's about 350 feet of fencing there. (Our property's on the right.)

Thirty five fence posts, each (or re-dug) dug with a plain old clam-shell post-hole digger. Obviously there's still a lot of boards to be put up (more boards are under the tarp to the right). The priority was on those posts though. The lower portion of the pasture in the front of the photo gets fairly wet if it rains. At the end of the spring rainy season, I could dig a post hole and it would fill just as fast with groundwater. Over the course of the summer each hole was nicely dry.

Other things are in the works for a couple of weeks, but I hope to finish putting up the fenceboards, and building the gate near the top, next month.
