Walking the Line

Okay, this is embarrassing, but we still haven’t actually made it to all four corners of the property. This past week, though, I finally tromped up to the northwest corner. Tried the northeast corner, too, but was stymied by blackberries.

Western fence, presumably built by the neighbors, is actually a pretty cool fence, albeit one that wouldn’t do squat for keeping animals in or out. But the house on the other side is lovely, with well-manicured gardens and a view out to our wetlands.

Northern border of the farm is 40 acres of forest owned by the city. If I understand correctly, we get to wander around here if we want.
