Fence is up!

I managed to get the back garden electric fence back in place.  T-posts are great for building fences but you have to brace the corners; I used T-posts for the bracing.  There is a high output fence charger that will shock deer through their hollow hairs.  I need to do some work on the gate.  However, I can now plant without worry of the deer eating everything.  When Molly the Deranged was here, deer were not a problem in the back veggie garden although they were in the little valley.

    My first thought when I saw the fence was"Jurassic Park". Except for the fact is, your trying to keep deer out. 
    The problem around here is that people think that they are cute and are now starting to feed them.

      I have heard of people putting out food in one spot in an effort to keep them out of the gardens.

      Yes.  some even feed squirrels which are very destructive in the gardens.

    The garden in the little valley also has an electric fence around it but I don't have to take any sections down to plough.  However, the back veggie garden is not large enough for me to turn around inside of the fence.  I open the front and rear sections; the ones with the single post, and leave the sides in place.  Once the garden is plough I just restring the wires.

      Yes, if the air gap decreases enough, it is possible if the electrical potential is high enough for the current to jump that air gap.

    Looks good! I don't have a problem with deer, but just about everything else... Raccoons, squirrels, voles, and the neighbors dogs/cats.

    Looks like a good solid fence. Such a shame that you can't garden in peace. Deer are problem here also but my outside dogs keep mine protected. I have more damage from the neighbors cows One neighbor is terrible about keeping her fence up so we put up one of our own. Now it's another neighbors white mule who comes visiting. grrrrrrrr!  More fence needed I guess.

        I have heard that. I just can't get my neighbors to build fences. lol They have the critters so  I think it is their job to keep them at home.
