How to Stop Cows! 16 March 2011

If you are a reader of this blog then you will now that I have problems with cows getting into my garden. The Kimets cow in particular. So this year I have taken drastic action and turned my house and garden into Colditz.

My neighbours think I have started to lose the plot, as whilst I was putting up the barbed wire I told them I would be putting machine gun posts at each corner of the garden!.

I am not sure if irony has entered into Bulgarian culture just yet, so they think I am serious.

I have also found a use for used plastice beer bottles which I seem to have a very large supply of.

So taking 250m of barbed wire.

Then concreting 15cm nails (thats 6 inches in old money) into my fence posts to hold the wire in place. The using old Ariana bottles concreting over the nails to hold it all secure.

Now for those machine gun posts......
