Over the fence


 Last time I drove through Okaihau, a local town about 20 minutes from here opposite our local cemetery after I parked my car I spotted these 2 workmen fixing a fence at the edge of a Kiwifruit farm.  They were there for quite a while and to me it looks like they are nailing some material at the top to protect the crop from prevailing winds in the Winter.

  2. This is the first time I saw how kiwis grow, crazy, huh. Never thought about, grab some from the supermarket shelf and eat!

  7. I like the idea of having a shelter-fence - too often shelter-belt trees seem to fall onto the roads in bad weather. Hopefully the fence won't :)
