Side Note: Look at this cool bench my daddy, Ray, built for us! He used wood salvaged from their deck dismantled last summer. The back splat is crafted of hickory. It is quite the comfy throne from which to survey the garden!
Horse stall door turned garden gate.
Side note: if you ever feel blue, take a trip to Mulhall's. Everything there - from the plants to the home decor to the fancy patio furniture - is so beautiful and good for the soul.
A chicken wire piece was stapled to the back of the gate.
With the final piece of fencing in place, it was finally time to plant. Wednesday after dinner, Mom and Dad came over for the planting party.
Dad planted additional seeds in the northwest bed. The lettuce they planted a week ago is already up!
Thursday (May 19) evening, Scott installed the gate hardware. He built up the support on the right post for the receiver of the self-closing latch.
The gate swings easily and the latch works great!
And just in time! This rabbit doesn't stand a chance against the awesome fortress we've built to protect our veggies. Now that the garden is done, what should we do?
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
