Ok - my hubby finally put away the last tractor. I wanted him to dig me some post holes to put a cedar fence around the front yard where I spent all fall digging new flower beds and trees to give the front yard more of a definition to it. Now - the ground is more frozen then he thought it would be. We just went out and used the cherry-fire thingy he uses to burn fields in the fall, and had the fire-torch thingy (I don't know what it's called, but it shoots fire) we kept it on the ground for a while and it's still quite frozen and he said "We'll have to wait for spring." I don't want to wait for spring, I wanted to decorate them with Christmas lights, and besides - I want the snowmobilers in the family to stay off the gardens! Any ideas? Start a fire over the areas or something? There's 6 holes I need!

We have a neighbor that has a "temp" fence..
Light pieces' of wood... as a split rail fence and they are all anchored into wooden planter tubs with dirt to hold them in and up.....

They used to put up Christmas deco's on it in winter, planted flowers in the wooden planters in the summer and when they moved...
they took it with them...

Thanks weezie - that's what we decided to do, just put them in big buckets of sand until spring, then I can make sure they are exactly where I want them placed too!

Thanks!

What a great idea. I need to section off a small section of a large paddock for my horse. He is only allowed turnout in a small paddock for 1 month because he had surgery. Our ground is frozen and we can't set any posts for the fence but this might work!
