Up goes the fence

The fence is going up this week. We got a good start thanks to many helping hands from family and friends. We started by harvesting some tamarack timber from the farm.

We peeled the timber the next day. It is an easy tree to peel if you do it right away. Tamarack is reputed to last over 30 years. Hopefully they will last in our rainy climate. 

Dan, Zach, Jamie and Lakshmi  helped out by auguring holes for the posts. This saved us a lot of digging. Thank you! 

A lot of work remains to be done. Putting in the posts is the hardest part. After that stringing the electric fence will be relatively facile. The electric fence will arrive any day now. We'll let you know how installing that goes.
