Garrett erects electric fence to protect water melons

Filed under: Family — Freddie Keel @ 6:11 am

first he drives stakes around the perimeter

and attached insulators to the stake.


Next he un-spools the wire.


after securing the wire

to the insulators on each stake,

he attached wire to charger.

He drives metal rod into ground

for the ground rod.

And finally attached wires to a six volt battery.

Our watermelon patch has been attacked

by small predators that chew on every watermelon.

We don’t know if they are rats, squirrels or ???

Hopefully, the electric fence will let them know

they are not welcome.
