Finishing touches

Huge tidy up in the backyard and reorganising. I'm really happy with the finished layout
Finished chicken run, but before I cut a hole in the coop I want to try and grow greenery in there for them to eat. I also need to protect raspberry canes from Neddie as he tries to chase and dig to get to the chooks. In summer I will grow passionfruit over the cage.

Is it fox proof? I hate having to use live bait to find out :(

I ran out of wire and also this shadecloth has been secured so I can easily undo it, so I can get in to empty out duck water etc...

Carabiner to hold down shadecloth.

Experimenting with using free wood shavings on the garden paths

Oops different coloured wood shavings, too tired to care tonight. I'll work something out later on.

In case the tags fall off the fruit trees I numbered them and named below.

  2. Lapins Cherry - Late December
  3. Moorpark Apricot - Early January
  4. 'd' Agen' Prune - Late February
  5. Millicent Peach - Mid February
  6. Fairlane Nectarine - Early March
  7. Granny Smith Apple - Late April
  8. Richer Red Delicious Apple - Mid March
  9. Golden Delicious Apple


  1. Looking good Kristy, especially the shot of the back decking :-)

  2. Thanks Magda, I am really happy :) You might not be able to tell, but my next project will be sanding and staining the outdoor dining set. Currently a weathered grey colour...
