We needed a fence for our vegetable garden to keep the dogs out (they think it's their playground, and love to dig in it). We couldn't see spending a lot of time and money to do a fancy fence because we plan to possibly expand the garden next year. We wanted something that was free and that wouldn't be wasted if we took it down later. So, we looked through the wood we had left over from the big tree we cut down last fall. K plans to use the big pieces for firewood, but there were lots of small but longish pieces that he hadn't cut or split yet. They make the prefect rustic, simple, temporary garden fence. If we decide to take it down next year we will just use it as firewood. It took us about 2 hours (during the girls nap time) to get this done. I love it, I just wish it could keep the bunnies out too.
