Chipping away with the chisel gave me a surface area where I could finally just whale away at the thing with the 2-pound sledge and dislodge large chunks until it all dropped off. The post is now moved out of the way and I've almost finished excavating the base of the next post. I came in to get the camera to get photos around the yard and of this project, so am bothering to update in the middle of the project.

With each of these digging exercises I am moving the Invisible Fence wire out of the way to avoid tripping or cutting with a shovel. Soon I'll be able to make the shallow cut and poke it 3-4 inches underground. And be able to mow right up to the new fence. And once I finish replacing the last old fence panel I'm going to landscape that corner with something shade-loving. A fellow retiree from the library is a fabulous gardener (in both ways - a fabulous person with a fabulous garden!) recommends Hellebores, but I looked them up, they're toxic to dogs. So those would have to go in the shady part of the front yard. I could probably get some transplants from him, they seem to self-propagate nicely.
