Two new garden gates were built today on the redwood branch and wine barrel fence. The little gates I had built unfortunately allowed too many gaps for the chickens to slip through into the garden and up the hill. With a fearless bobcat coming by, it’s time to let the chickens come out their coop into a more confined free-range zone.
The main entrance gate was made from a variety of vintage grape stakes found around the property on old gates. Another gates was made from locust branches that should last longer than redwood branches. Plus, all the garden beds are made from locust so might as well match the wood. Rich, a skilled carpenter, built the third gate’s frame, but I have to collect more locust branches to finish it. One step closer to making the garden pretty and fully functional!
