Very Productive Weekend

During the course of the weekend the cabin went from looking like this:

to looking like this!

Quite an improvement!

We also put up our garden fence. We got deer fence from Deerbusters. This stuff is 7 1/2 feet tall which means the posts are 9 feet! We had to stand in the back of the truck to reach to put them in.

After we were done it looked like this:

The garden is 50 by 100 feet and that pile of brush you see inside the fence is 42 by 35 feet! The brush will be chipped up to put on the paths.
I made flags out of strips cut from grocery bags to tie all around the fence. This is so the deer will realize that the fence is there and not walk right into it. I will take the strips down after a few weeks.

We did not make the gates yet, so still work to do on the fence. There will be a gate in the middle of each of the 50 foot ends and a path wide enough for the little tractor and trailer to make it through.

I could not believe it got up to 80 degrees over the weekend when on Wednesday it was 8 degrees overnight.
I can hardly wait to get back and lay out the beds and start planting!
