Wind Break Progress

The fence is up and the JAZ Farm has a windbreak on the south side!  I put up 400 pickets yesterday and in the past two days have screwed in 2000 screws.  Even with a screw driver attached to a drill my shoulder is aching pretty good.

The next step is to put braces along the back.  We get a good wind and that fence will be laying on the ground.  The braces are pretty simple;  Just 2×4’s attached to the frame and a small sono-tube footer for it to cement into.  We had some 30 mph winds while I was putting up the pickets and you could tell that the garden was being sheltered from it.  Good thing to.  9o feet long plus a second section 35 feet long.  It is high time these construction projects were done so we can get to planting!

We have decided that above all else…. We love our JAZ Farm!!
