The old garden fence is hanging on by a thread. I’m not even sure a self-respecting deer would bother to eat those ugly peas growing in the garden but I’ll feel much better when the new fence is done.
The fence builder was waiting on Vince to get all the pipe painted. He got that done last week so now we’re waiting on the fence builder to finish up a couple of small jobs and get back over here.
The outdoor sink, where I wash the dirty veggies . . mostly the root veggies in the fall garden, has been disconnected and moved. I’m so glad! When Vince originally installed it, he said “How’s this?” and I said “Fine”, but it wasn’t fine. It was way too low and it killed my back hunching over washing all that stuff. It needed to be at least a foot higher but when I mentioned that it was too low, he said “Do you want me to disconnect all the plumbing in order to raise it?” Well . . that’s kinda what I was thinking but I guess not! Now, it can all be re-installed higher.
One of the things I hate doing . . really hate doing . . is cutting trees around here. They take forever to grow with the drought and we so desperately need shade. Several trees were cut on the side between the old fence and the barbed wire fence but one more tree had to be cut that was going to interfere with the other side of the fence.
There’s part of it. You can see in this picture how open this area is where the new garden will be. I’m probably going to regret that we didn’t cut that one tree still standing along the pipe fence but for now, it remains.
We didn’t totally cut down the tree but for all intents and purposes, it’s gone.
Progress! Just wish it didn’t have to involve cutting a tree.
