Stump gate

gate post made from existing stump in 2011 early spring chicken pasture #4

I'm not sure how much longer this old stump will last, but using it to shore up one of the gate posts helped to add some stability to the frame.

It just took a few minutes to trim out a bottom notch with the chainsaw, and a scrap piece attached nicely to function as a brace at the top of the stump.

Wow! your photo shows green plants growing in the background, I envy you guys with your early spring. Some of the tree buds are just now starting to to bud out here in NE Ohio. One of these days I would love to come visit you and perhaps you could do the same with us.

And I'm jealous of the folks further south who are planting out their tomatoes already! But, have heart, you can laugh at us in July when we're sweltering. :-)

We'd love to see your operation sometime! You should let us know if you're ever going to be down this way.
