I love the look of the pallet fence I built around my older garden, and I especially love the cost--a whopping $7! And that was for the screws and a fence post. The pallets were free, and any boards I used came from our scrap lumber pile. The fence isn't perfect, but since nothing else around here is either, it fits in just fine. You can imagine after building that first garden fence so inexpensively, I had no desire to spend a lot of money on this second one. And thanks to my resourceful Uncle Curt, my dedicated dad, my handy husband, and my sweet son, I didn't have to.
How wonderful! And thoughtful...and helpful. I wish all my chores went like that.
Although I adore my family, they do have other demands on their time so there's a fat chance of that happening very often. But in this particular case, here's how this one did. (Happen, I mean.):
I'm thrilled, actually. For twenty dollars I got my garden protected and ready for spring, I gained a nice addition to my homestead landscape, and I got to spend quality time working with beloved family members. I'd say I got quite the bargain--a priceless one at that!
Now all I need is a gate...after all, a fence is only as good as its gate! Or something like that.
