Fence Building at the Community Garden

With an abundance of self-sown birch saplings on site, it didn’t take long to add the next stretch.  With the help of a hired petrol-driven auger, six more posts were put in place at a distance of seven feet between them (total 42 feet).


Once each of the three rails were nailed into place, it was time to get weaving.

The original idea was to make the Community Garden rabbit-proof.  It’s never going to happen, so we’ve settled for making it as a boundary marker instead, and too keep the area private.

For once, the sun shone – too much – and two hours work moving wood around was more than enough for me, though much better than last week moving and lifting barrows of wet soil.
