I hammer like my Mother..

Ahh, well, its been about 6 months sense the front pasture supplies were bought... They have been resting in the carport sense then. I have occasionally gotten one post planted here and there, but at the rate I was going it would have been another 6 months before the pasture was done. So I took a vacation from work...

I even made a "vacation daily schedule" so I would move along at a good rate. I stopped looking at it on day 2 when I realized I was already behind. I'm at day four as I write this part- so far all 28 post holes are dug and posts are set. H-braces have been built at all corners, gates, and ends. I have one corner set that needs to be braced, and 2 corners that still need brace wire.

It did take me a minute to figure out how to get the H braces up solo- smashed my finger in the process- but its going much smoother now than the first couple.

And I hammer like my Mom, which isn't a good thing. I think I'm spending more time searching the grass for flying fence staples than I spent digging holes... well.. maybe not :)

Its about 3:30, and I stopped for coffee. And probably some toast. I intend to get the last 2 corners completely done, then either start running some wire or hang gates. I dare not say what I am going to get done tomorrow, for fear that I will jinx myself.
