A Fence and some Fruit

Can you believe two posts on consecutive days?  I'm amazed myself!

I wanted to show you my DH's latest project. So we have this big dog who will not cross over a low fence and since I don't want him lumbering around where he shouldn't be ( in my flowerbeds)  we have had wooden fences for years. Now they are getting shabby and we thought we'd try plastic pipe  ( inch and a half white water pipe from the lumber yard)and white plastic chain which will attach with large cup hooks. This should make it easy to unhook the chain and give it a wash from time to time.

                            Old fence with Japanese Anemone September Charm  starting to bloom behind it.

              The beginning of the new fence. As you can see the chain is just held with clamps for now.

                      Cherries have come down in price so we bought another 20 pounds.

While at the fruit stand we saw over ripe peaches for .59 lb so I picked some with the idea of making a peach crisp but once I had them cut up I realized they were so very ripe I'd be better to make jam. So I did. 4 little jars.
Okay, I'm off to the porch again. When I'm not in the kitchen or out in the garden everyone knows just where to find me.

  1. Fence looks wonderful, as does the jam. I always make jam when I get a good price for fruit, its a lovely taste of summer in the Autumn/Winter.

  2. Great idea for the new fence. We are still waiting for local peaches here. They should be ready any day now.
    Have a good weekend!

  3. Yummy looking cherries and peach jam. That is funny that the chain fence will keep out your big dog. Coco is a small cocker and she was climbing over our two foot fence into the garden so had to put in a higher one! Nancy
