One thing about homesteading, life gets in the way. I plan on making regular posts but keep failing to do so.
Last week I started working on the back yard, hopes are to eventually make the whole back yard a permaculture garden but the chickens are very destructive.
Many people do a lot with a car but with livestock fencing and other materials are often needed making it very helpful to have a truck.
Last year a tree fell in the backyard making it a little unsightly but luckily for me it was a black locust which is very good for construction purposes.
The gate is not actually attached here. One problem with locust is that it is hard wood and hard to work with. Screwing the hinge bolts into the wood is not easy, after predrilling holes a pipe is handy for screwing the hinge bolts in.
