Forest Garden Update 11/29/2012


I managed to make a little more progress with the warm weather over the long holiday weekend getting the first section of forest garden layed out.  I used my 300' reel tape to make sure the 164' poultry netting would fit on the mowed paths.  The fence posts mark the corners of the garden and will support a snow fence to keep the chickens inside to destroy the turf this Spring.
