Garden fence day one

Garden fence planning post intervals.

We started plotting out our new garden fence perimeter this week.

There was a short debate about making the fence underground to keep out critters that dig but we decided deer was our biggest threat.

Is that PVC you're sticking in the ground? Or metal tube? I'll be really interested to know all the materials you've chosen when all is done.

I still haven't gotten used to seeing a road near your place. Was it hard for you to get used to or was the convenience so overriding that it was a quick adjustment?

The deer, in the bushes on the other side of the road, watch with interest... "Pfffft! If they think they are going to fence us out, they better try harder than that!"

Little do they know the smiling lady with the braids is learning archery! :)

Game on!
