We always have a few projects going on around here. While we are not quite done with the wood floor, the basement, the fire-place or the screened in porch, it still seemed time to start another project. Actually, this one is not being done by JD; we hired our friend's son to build it and James and Ben are the hired helpers. James really thrives on working with his hands and has been setting his alarm early to get his school work done so he can get out to start working. Ben, well, he likes to get paid. We have had the wood for the fence stacked in the barn for about three years - we paid the Amish to mill it from the oak trees that were taken down where our house is built.
They just stated this week and have made it quite the distance cementing the posts in. The posts will not remain that tall, but will be trimmed to the same height as the goat fence that is already in place at the barn side of the fence.
So, our next weekend project is going to be to till and plant grass in this whole area - about 2.5 acres. We obviously need grass for whatever ends up living in the fence to snack on. And if you are wondering what is going to live in the fence, that is still in the discussion phase. Choices are a beef cow, a dairy cow or a boarded horse or some combination of the previous. Oh, and Elijah and I are anxiously awaiting two Nigerian Dwarf goat kids!
