Last week they plowed the community garden and marked out the new plots. I've been itching to get in there and put up my fence. I went over at 8am and started putting up the fence posts.
The plot is 20' wide by 24' deep. I had planned for 20'X20' so I'm kind of excited about gaining an extra 4 feet!
Sorry to say this is the only picture I took today, but I was EXHAUSTED and forgot to take a picture when I left around 5pm. By the end of the day I had put up the 3 sides and back fence. The fence is 6 foot tall. JR came by and helped with the fence and we also put chicken wire buried 7" deep around the perimeter.
I'll take some more pictures tomorrow.
I got to meet a couple of my gardening neighbors and they gave me some helpful tips. There are definitely deer and a pesky groundhog to contend with. There are also many birds and they said last year the birds ate many of the tomatoes. I was told to consider putting netting around the tomatoes!! <seriously??!>
the 4 containers you see in the photo above are full of sifted compost that I got for free from the township. I managed to mark off the beds before I left and add the compost. Tomorrow I plan to finish the front fence and construct the gate frame.
