Fence Project, Day 6.5

(It's 6.5 because we worked just half a day.)

We spread out grass seed and covered it with straw.  This means that it probably won't rain for a week now.

Straw spread over grass seed...
and The Pile

I broke down and photographed The Pile of debris from the fence, because tomorrow afternoon it will be gone.  And of course I want to remember how terrible it looked.

Someone asked me if I found anything interesting in the yard.  Yesterday we found these:
Found not with a metal detector,
but with a shovel.
A horseshoe.  Those round things are barrel hoops, all that's left of a barrel that someone (probably the Kellys) had out by the stable.  I am keeping them.


  1. Those metal rings and horse shoe would look cute hanging on your new fence.

  2. AWESOME! I think it was me that asked about the excavation treasures. Those are great. They sure beat the hell out of a MARBLE! :-)
