Last weekend was a mix of hard work and great satisfaction as we spent time fencing the plot.
I am in awe of anyone who can bash in 24 fence posts in an afternoon, but that is exactly what was achieved. Recognition and immense thanks go to Andy for his hard graft and brute force, and to Barry from the allotment who lent us his auger and post rammer.
I did try, I really did, to turn the auger (nope, it spiralled around and didn’t make much impression on the ground) and then use the rammer (I struggled to lift it above shoulder height), so if it wasn’t for Andy’s strength I think the allotment would remain unfenced forever more!
I did manage to move things into the right place, sort out the string lines, supervise, and saw down the corner bracing fence posts.
Sunday was spent attaching the netting.
Excellent work all round!
