The north property line fence was finished this February. We had very mild weather this winter so I cleared a lot of blackberries and Lee took down a lot of wild hazelnut trees. Sidney got overdosed on cartoons one night and we threw up the wire field fencing by flashlights and headlamps.
Behind our house was a section of old horse fencing interwoven with blackberries and thorny Purple Robed Locus trees. We cleared that all out (other than a few sticking up stumps we need to finish removing) and later this summer we will put up a new fence. It’s all about child containment now.
On the east side of our property we have an old Cottonwood trunk that is covered with blackberries. We had never completely beaten back the blackberries to our neighbor’s property until now. The tree is holding back a sea of more blackberries but that cleanup will have to wait. If we finish ringing the back yard in fences this summer, then the east property line fence down to our neighbor will be next on the list.
