Earlier this week, I was scanning through my Facebook news feed and caught an add for some picket fence panels being offered for a steal. Okay, a steal would have been FREE, but these were being offered for under 10 bucks per 4 x 8 panel and there were 10 of them! That's 80 feet of pickets that at regular cost would have been $250.00 ( including tax) brand new. I was happy to pay $ 70.00 and haul them home in the back of my Explorer ( with my trusty helper, our son).
Slow it goes on our little homestead but somehow the things we need ( and dream of ) have a way of turning up if we are patient! I've always pictured my pickets painted white, but the way they look slightly weathered is growing on me and just seems to fit right in to our current garden scheme. Time to schedule a fence raising party! Keep the faith! What you've been yearn'n for could be right around the corner or, in your Facebook news feed.
Be sure to stop by and see my co-hostess and farmgirl in crime Debbie Tegart of Farmgirl Unleashed Blog. She's not going backwards in her garden this year after all! It's amazing what a new perspective can do for a gardener under the gun!
Tis' the season of plenty and there is so much to celebrate! Share the bounty here! Crafting, cooking, canning, chickens, gardening, farming, etc... and just plain farmgirlin' around!
As always, we thank you for your participation in the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop!
You don't have to live on a farm to join this hop!
