With all the log splitting, lugging and stacking followed by a most welcome surprise of a huge load of wood chip, last Saturday was occupied barrowing loads to and fro and then all round the garden!!
The beech hedge around the Henclosure not only enjoyed the close attention of Chris's hedgecutter but earlier in the week, Chris Genever came to install additional fortifications! the electric fence needed elevating and tensioning. Chris's brilliant solution was to fix lengths of batten between the posts and attach the insulators to the battens. The post finials were then attached at each joint. GENIUS! The battens won't stay girlie pink for long as Simon kindly agreed to give them a coat of creosote tomorrow.
