Post-Raising Day on the Farm

A couple of weeks ago, we had our son's hockey team come do some free labor a bonding exercise at the farm. Things looked good from the outset as the guys were pretty assured of their brawn.


Not everyone on the farm was so sure…


Jon explained the process and what they'd be doing. Some head-scratching ensued.


The boys were very distracted by free-roaming turkeys, but they got down to business. First digging the holes to specific measurements.


And then placing the post in the holes (before they collapsed!).


After Willson and Brett gave the all-clear with appropriate levels and tape measures, they moved onto the next one.


They did quite a lot of work for the few hours they were here. Thank you NJ Rockets U16
