Z is for… Zip Tie

I’m fairly convinced that most projects can be accomplished with nothing but the cunning use of zip ties.

This line of zip ties is, cunningly, attaching panels of light weight, small holed fencing over the top of the hog panels that my dad used to make my new, fantastic mobile duck and goose house.

The double layer of wire will be strong and has small enough openings to keep, as my husband calls them, rotten ____ ____ ____ raccoons, from getting in. (Fill in the blanks as you please, but if it’s a word that’s complimentary or something you could say in front of a 3-year old, it’s probably not the word that goes there.)

Just a few more finishing touches (insulation and a tarp over the top) and we will be ready to move the birds in!

 

…And this completes my month of photo blogging through the alphabet!

      Thank you! It was a fun month and good to have an excuse to carry the camera with me, I sometimes forget how much I like taking pictures if it’s not at hand- silly, but true!

    And a jolly merry month it was! 😀 … if cats ever figure out how to use zip-ties, we’re doomed! 😀

    I have said for a long time that zip ties are a wonderful invention!! It makes so many jobs easier!! I call them cable ties but same thing. Can you imagine the time and work involved if you had to cut and twist wire
