We've made a lot more progress on the garden this week. I had blueberries and asparagus coming in the mail so I really needed it to be ready! I got my blueberries all planted. Asparagus hopefully will get done today or tomorrow.
Here's a good overall look from a few days ago. Cameron got all garden beds made and I put them roughly where they will go. We will dig each bed in so it's level on the slope. I also painted fence posts black. I love black fences.
Saturday the Elders came over and helped Cam put up the fencing. They are super hard workers and also worked happily. By the time we finished for the day we had 3 sides of the fence up. I am super grateful and told them as much. Even so, I still think those guys have no idea how much they reduced my stress level.
Cameron jimmy rigged up a stretcher to pull fence and we borrowed a come-along from a friend. It worked well.
The fencing is a black coated welded wire fence. It's almost invisible from far enough away.
