Aug 25, 2013 setting fence posts

I learned today to how to put in fence posts. First you gotta dig a hole 2 feet deep.

That was hard work. Glad I had my pal Mikey there to help me out. We dug 3 holes. Then we mixed up some quickcrete and placed the fence posts in the holes and poured the Crete in holes.

We have to let that set awhile so it’s nice and strong!
So then we put some wire fencing up to keep the dogs in. We have split rails so we had to hammer it on the wood but it looks great.
