THANK YOU Dody and Kelley and all you Okie gardeners. Your help, support, and company kept me going.

Just over 200 feet...so we averaged five feet per day. I still need to do a few odds and ends (remove old chicken wire fence, mulch a littlle bit more with cardboard/straw).

Jo,

OOOOOHHH! I'm squealing with delight! It is magnificent, marvelous and every other wonderful thing I can't think of the words to describe.

If your fence were a tomato, it would be a Brandywine. A big, thick, delicious, luscious, perfect, best-tasting-tomato-in-the-world Brandywine.

You did it! You not only saw a fence that you thought was "so cute" but you also felt inspired by it and adapted the design to fit your garden. Then, you developed a plan and put it into action. Look at what you did. It is simply amazing.

Now, give Kelley and Dody the day off tomorrow because it is Mother's Day and y'all have earned the right to sit around eating bon-bons and patting one another on the back.

So, what's the next dream project?

Beautiful!! I really love the towers and posts that match. When someone says potager, I usually think of a garden that's classy, attractive and useful. Your garden is all of that.

Jo - not only is that just the most charming garden fencing I've EVER seen, but I strongly suspect you increased your equity - not to mention "curb appeal". You're one smart gal!

It's beautiful, and I really love how you painted the trellises (trateurs? - help me here) to match the green in the fence. Love them! It would almost be a shame to cover them up with plants, but I know that's almost sacrilege to even say! I'm trying to say that I love the fence, and appreciate all the work it took to get it done. Makes me tired just thinking about it all.

This is eye candy worthy of "Clippings". A real upper to refer back to on a down day! Great job!
