Pretty normal weekend here at PFHQ.
Yesterday, I planted lettuce, carrots, and turnips ... a little late for such cool weather crops, but I am ridiculously optimistic when it comes to vegetable gardening. Stupidly so.
Later, Mrs. FC and I rode out to a gorgeous wild place owned by our friend, Mr. Billy. Billy had a pile of limerock he had scratched out of the earth and he said we could have all we want, so we went.
(Tomorrow's post most likely)
Saturday I spent part of the day bolting 8 foot posts to the existing short posts of an extra hog pen which doubles as a garden area. The high fence that will run between them should deter deer from my veggies.
The day was sunny and cool which made the work extremely pleasant, plus I had lots of help ...
Here we "see" our resident ghost, "Ponce" drilling the holes for the 7 inch lag screws that hold the tall posts to the short. He's pretty handy to have around, but is sometimes mischievious ... he's got a bad habit of collecting socks from the dryer for instance.
Mostly he's "out of sight, out of mind" and we don't mind him a bit.
I had other help too.
While Ponce did the drilling, it was Chewie who mastered the sprocket wrench and made short work of cranking those 7 inch lag screws through both posts.
You're surprised a pig can work a wrench? Surely you've read that oft repeated line about pigs being smarter than dogs and politicians.
Chewie caught on to using the sprocket wrench in no time, which didn't surprise me one bit.
After all ...
... it's not sprocket science.
