Getting around the apple tree
I needed to attach wire to the five panels I welded up yesterday to get around the apple tree I’m trying to avoid.
Another stump to whack
The apple tree is on the right and the extension around it is in the center. But now I see that bush on the left has got to come out. It’s a crape myrtle or something like that. It doesn’t bare anything to eat so it goes.
I watered the ground around the bush to soften it up before I started. As I dug around the dump I noted that it had many roots and a bunch of them right under the bush, so it wouldn’t budge so I got out the whacker, the mall and broke it into pieces which took care of the problem.
The bush is out
Put up the panels I had
Once that was done, I put up the last panel that starts the next enclosure I have to build, but I need to get some more rebar first.
Little chicken door
Here’s the view looking out with the apple tree on the left. I decided to not put a big door in the extension end but put a little chicken door there so they’ll be able to get into the other enclosure when I want them to.
Still lots to do
I really went through the rebar and I’m almost out of it and I need some more wire and clips too so I’ll have to go shopping soon. The panels I put up today finish off the main chicken run so I need to work on finishing up the things the pen needs to operate with chickens, like some drinking water and roosts.
That was my day.
