Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Building Trellises for the Berry Plants

This weekend we completed our goal of building trellises for all of the berry plants, grapes, and kiwi.  A lot of work making 17 holes, 2 feet deep with a post hole digger.  One of the bolts broke during use so we borrowed a hole digger from the neighbor.  For the posts we used logs that we scavenged in the woods and rebar was used to support the 14 gauge wire that will support the vines.  We couldn't find untreated 4x4s around here so we decided to use logs.  We know they will need replacing but they will last a few years at least.  Digging holes and assembling trellises is one project I am thankful to have complete before the humidity sets in later this summer.
