Many Hands Make Light Work

Especially when its your dads and brothers hands. They were both kind enough to give up their Sunday to help me get started on a bit of fencing. I was more than a little daunted by how much fencing I had to do around the veg and fruit garden, and I wasn't really sure where to start as I hadn't done much in the past.
Surrounded by family on a Sunday - what could be better
We decided to use posts that are first tanalized then dipped in creosote as although they cost more they last so much longer and I don't fancy fencing this again anytime soon! It was a hard day with lots of bashing with the post basher - I can barely lift my arms above my waist tonight they feel that heavy! 
Most of the fence posts are in now
By the end of the day we had got most of the posts in (although there's still the chicken pen to do) and a line of straining wire so I could see what to do on my own in the evenings this week.

Nice line from the chicken pen down the garden
Another tough Sunday but there's nothing else I'd rather be doing to get things ready for our smallholding! By doing this right now we'll save ourself lots of time in the future.
