We got the fence up across the back of the yard behind the big shed. Yesterday, we planted the apple trees. They like being in the ground. They were bareroot so they were in little plastic bags with soaked sawdust. We had to soak them in water for several hours. Dan and I went to Phoenix while we waited. When we got home Brian and I planted them. Brian put in three posts in a triangle around the trees. Then, he took a piece of clear plastic tubing and threaded a wire through it and put it around the tree trunk. Then, he attached a wire to each post and the the wire coming out of the tubing. It will keep the tree straight while it grows. The trees have some very small leaves coming out already. They just needed the water, I guess. I'll need to buy something to feed them, I guess.
Today, I put rocks along the outer fence and we moved a piece of flagstone to put under the gate that goes to the alley. I started to level the area that we are going to fence along the back fence so Chance can't run along the fence to bark at the neighbor. She'll just run along the inside fence instead. Anyway, I'm going to put potting soil and compost between the two fences and plant flowers.
It was warm so I didn't work at it too long. There is always tomorrow. Need to go check on the greenhouse and see if it's time to close the vent. Dooley
