John Graves wrote that owning a farm "devoured much time and energy that might more wisely have been sluiced into other kinds of equally human effort elsewhere" and that nothing took more time than fences. He is very right. My mornings and nights have basically been all fence posts, fence clips, barbwire and chainsaws for the last two weeks. But Graves is also right when he says that it's pretty much worth the trade. @jaredpolin
