I think I may have mentioned I recently moved into my childhood home. It has two small fruit tree orchards and a large vegetable garden. Only problem is, I can’t plant anything without the deer having a field day! There are multiple places the fence has fallen down and the deer can get in. A few were caused by trees falling, one huge hole was created by PG&E and Davey Tree, when they had to fix a downed power line. And a couple are just simple wear on the fencing itself.
So yesterday my Dad and one of our employees (who is also a great friend of mine) came over to walk the fence line. We cleared a path along the entire thing so it can be accessed when we actually do the fencing itself. We made a parts list aswell. We need over 100 new posts. Almost the entire length of fence needs to have an extension added to the top, bottom or both, and a good portion needs to be replaced entirely.
It sounds like my fence is a complete disaster. But it only took three hours to walk and clear the entire thing. And although a big portion needs to be worked on, a good length of it is just fine.
We are ordering the necessary parts today and hopefully the project will be finished in the next two weeks. I’m going to ask a bunch of my friends to come over and help. Some good food, a little beer, hopefully a day without rain, and the whole fence will come together in a snap.
(BTW, “Creek” is what we call my homestead because of where it is located.)
