This year planting mostly Warm Weather stuff so I won't plant until Last of April first of May. Using Cattle Panels for stuff to climb. Have a 20X20 Main Garden but have bunch of Berries and Fruit planted on the place.

Getting older and no kids find we don't need that much.

Do you prune the berry bushes and fruit trees on your property for yield?

Yes my wife Over Pruned my Blackberries last year and had less Berries. Been fighting Japanese Beetles too.

Not enough Bears around here to be a problem. They like Fish over at the Park better anyway.

We just finished cleaning up the yard and flower beds, even raked and cut the grass to make the yard look as nice as possible for anyone interested in buying this home. It was 52 degrees today, warm enough to let you break a sweat.

Our builder told me last night that closing on the new place is 6 weeks away, now talk about getting a little nervous, my wife is on pins and needles.  We have lowered the price on this home four times and all we get are dreamers and tire kickers. It's going to be hell owning over a million in real estate here shortly ....  No

UPDATE April 2nd- Sold this house now need to be moved by May 7th straight into the new one. Then start all over with garage and yard, etc.   Rolling Eyes   Crying or Very sad  Hell to do this at this point in your life, thanks to the wife's health issues, don't get old folks.  Mad

When still on the farm (300 acres) we had a large garden by the house with a berry patch at the back of the garden. To keep the fence up we got a pile of used oil well casing pipe, cut 6' and 10' long pieces and built the fence 4' high 10' wide (welded together) used heavy hog wire for panels welded in place. Talk about being strong, even did the same for several pastures to keep the horse in. 

The deer and elk would hit that fence and bounce off.  Best damn thing we came across for fencing.  :rtup

Sounds like a ROCK SOLID fence Buck! 

 An old Cattle Farmer on the Coast where i grew up had a Hi-Tec Fence built, Called a New Zealand Fence, it is a Spring loaded setup, The Ole Boy was telling me how well it worked, he said every year they get a few Wild Cattle that break through Fence, The First one that tried it on this New Zealand Fence was Comical, She Hit it Wide Open, The Fence reacted similar to a Slingshot and Sent her Back the other Way Very Happy The Ole Farmer told me the Downside was Cost, He said it was REALLY Expensive Fencing
