I did not do any fancy tilting of the camera to shoot this picture. It really was that crooked.
This project was completed with the excellent and talented help of my neighbors. Greg, next door, is a general contractor and Darrell, through the backyard, is an electrician. Since I wasn't strong enough to work the two-man power auger (I would love to have photos of this but that would have been seriously uncool in their company.), I did all I could with the other tools to be helpful and not get in anyone's way. I now know how to (manually) dig a post hole, how to use a breaker bar, how to tamp the dirt and concrete, how to measure out the posts and make the fence level and true.* That's a lot to learn in a day in exchange for water, sandwiches and some beer. I have the best neighbors ever.
*Whacking at stumps and old concrete, weeding some wicked garlic mustard and taking out small trees were just bonus activities.
don't you love the compost bin highlighted in this picture?
I think it turned out rather well.
How about you? What are you taking on this Spring?
