The Garden Fence

When it comes to DIY my husband puts me to shame. This last Mother’s Day weekend we spent it at my sister-in-law’s home. She’s been wanting to have a bigger garden to grow more fruit and veggies, and wanted to keep the critters (aka rabbits) out of her garden.

Her dear husband called mine to have him build a fence for her. They tore their old fencing out and constructed a new one.

Starting from scratch, with new materials, and with my husband’s plans together they created a well built fence.

I just love how it turned out. My sister-in-law was pretty happy about it of course. She does have some work to do. Can’t help but feel a bit jealous though.

To think all weekend long they were out in the rain digging, building, and constructing. Then the sun comes the following day they were done. Poor guys. It was pretty cold out there too.

Mind you, my husband is not a contractor nor a carpenter. I really think he missed his calling. Don’t you think?

I can’t wait to see what my sister-in-law puts in her new garden. What kind of fruit or veggies do you grow in your garden?



I am a mother of two girls (6 & 7) and two boys(2 & 4). I am married to a wonderful man named Seth. We are happy to have Princess, our black lab, in our family. I, proudly, lived all my life in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona until I married my husband on June 2007. That is when I moved here to Western Massachusetts. Over 8 years and 4 kids later, I yet have explored more of New England. Join me on our outings of New England. Plus, I tend to be a little crafty, so you will find a lot of "DIY" posts as well. Pretty much of everything since I love trying new things, and how to make my busy life as a mommy go as smoothly as possible.
