Electric sheep fence and new Plum trees

It took me 2 days to fence 1/2 Hectare of grass land for the sheep we bought recently. I wish I had some help but I managed alone.

The sheep are now officially free range :) They seem very calm and happy with their new home. They started grazing as soon as they touched the grass :)
 We bought 10 various Plum trees. We got them very cheap :)
They will be planted inside our forest garden 7 meters apart from each other. So happy we could afford this. For me it is very important we start planting fruit trees now because it takes 4-5 years before they will bear fruit. Next year I plan to plant 10 more fruit trees very likely Pears and something else depending what we can get. I will protect these Plum trees from Deer with a wire netting and will mulch them well so their roots have enough moisture next summer.

    1. Thanks for offering help :) maybe I will ask him next time I do it on the south side of the forest

  2. Now if you have finer details to put into the masked areas you can go ahead and using your sponge brush and your paints, lightly dab paint onto your detailed areas. Once again take care, light coats, many layers. For my design I did not need to. swimming pool fence
