This new gate is our biggest
one yet, which prompted me to think about adding a diagonal brace
thanks to comments from our most recent chicken
gate last summer.
A small turnbuckle ended up
costing about 2 dollars, which can barely be seen in the photo near the
center point. A short stretch of 14 gauge electric fence wire connects
the end of the turnbuckle to a hole drilled through each corner.
The gap at the bottom should
be sufficient to let Lucy through. What we're not sure about is if it's
a big enough temptation for our invasive, white tailed friends looking for a big snack.
