Grateful for my Handy Man

My husband is one of those guys that’s just plain handy to have around. He fixes what breaks, and builds what we need.

And two weeks ago I needed a fence.

See, I have this garden. And this year I’m really hoping to get a good harvest out of it!

But the deer? Well, they seem to have other plans. They ate all of my cucumbers, half my peppers and even started munching on my strawberries! And while I had some great comments on my other blog about it (human hair seems to keep them away) we figured it was time to “go big or go home”.

See what he built me?
My garden right now is about 24′ x24′ and is now guarded like fort knox! He spent his whole Saturday morning and early afternoon putting this up all by himself. And don’t worry – we know deer can jump. That’s why we haven’t yet cut down the posts yet. If they come back we’ll put a bit more fencing up. :-)

And that’s what I’m so grateful for today – my awesome husband!
