Construction update #4 --- the wall fence

Just another quick update. Construction of the wall fence in front of the farm has begun.

Come early November, four more will be hired to speed up the completion this project. Once completed, the wall will shield from view the lower portion of the farm from anyone walking or driving by on the street. Also this will prevent the animals from roaming outside the perimeter of the farm and keep outside animals from coming in.

Next on the plate of things to do is to build permanent enclosures for the animals. When this is done, they will no longer be allowed to roam freely outside their pens. Only then can we begin with the initial greening of the garden, knowing that our vegetarian friends are safely corralled and won't be able to munch on the plants.

For now we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of typhoon Lupit ("Ramil"). For the past couple of days it has been raining intermittently as the typhoon slowly inches closer toward northern Luzon. All we can do is hope and pray that this typhoon won't leave a path of devastation as it crosses land in the coming days.
