The fifth of ten metal fence posts is down, the concrete footer from the fourth one is knocked off, broken, and stuffed into the newest hole then filled with the original soil. I'm not leaving any holes standing there waiting for someone or something to trip into. Now I'm waiting for another rainstorm to soak the area to dig the next one. I have a stack of metal posts next to the cut up fence that I'm going to mostly discard in two weeks during bulky waste, but some will be used for edging in the garden.
Dorothy, do your neighbors have any recommendations for a local handyman to help move stuff? I have a friend here who is on speed dial of probably every house on both sides of my street. If something needs doing - "maybe Antonio could do it." Everyone needs an Antonio in the neighborhood. He makes a living this way, through referrals only.
It's hot and very humid, so my outdoor tasks are brief, then I come back in to cool. I saw a canopy that is 25% off today (via coupon) at Harbor Freight - tempting to pick one up and put it up over the garden so I can work on it longer at a time.
