Fence: did some more work on the fence last week. Posts were put in last year, assisted by Robert the Artificer and his machine, (dang that thing made a post hole in under two minutes) with welded wire stretched between, 8' high. Some of the rails went in at that time, but a few of them are just enough over 10' to warrant longer boards.
Next i've got to design and build a proper gate. I do like the one on the front of Sylvia Landsberg's Medieval Gardens book.
Water: an hour under the sprinkler barely dampened below the surface, so the water's been on for two now. It is better to water every other day for two hours than once a day for one.
Oh, and the first two cucumbers were picked yesterday, and the first tomato should be perfect tomorrow!
