On Sunday we rented an auger to drill the 40+ holes. Paul, my brother and a friend manned the auger and got the holes dug fairly quickly. Between rocks, roots and hard-packed soil some of the holes had to be finished with the manual post hole digger to reach the correct depth.
We are using locust fence posts that are about 7 ft long. I really love the rustic look of them and how they are all different. I think they add a lot of character to the fence row.
You can see most of the entire area to be fenced in the picture below. It's big and I can't wait to fill it up with plants!
We still have to tamp down a few more posts, hang 2 gates and run the wire. But hopefully we can get that done by next weekend so I can start planting!
