|The fence is looking good!|
Whew, it has been a busy week. Last Saturday was the Oregon State Science Olympiad competition, and we were really busy. So busy, I could hardly tell if I was coming or going. Because of that, we stalled out on our new garden area. We did get some work done before that, so I thought I would write up a little blog post showing off our new fence for our garden area. It’s so gorgeous. I love the clean look of the red cedar. I am going to leave it that way for now, and when it grays out, I will whitewash it so it looks fresh again.

|Hard at work!|
|Showing off the hardest part of the job.|
We used 10 foot long cedar 4 by 4's for the main posts. We cut all but two of them in half to support the fence. We left two of them tall to act as the entry way. We sunk each post down two feet and anchored the middle and end posts in concrete.
