Posts for the vineyard

Hello everybody –

We are trying to get a head start on next year, and would like to start laying out the vineyard this year before the snow flies.  Since it’s only MaryAnne and myself most of the time, it might not happen, but I’m hopeful that we have a mild fall and get some posts in the ground sooner rather than later.

The really nice boys over at the Himrod Farm supply were more than happy enough to fill up my truck with a full bundle.

Please do not try this at home: The bundle of 8 footers, and the extra 20 of the 10 footers weighs more than your average pickup truck can carry.  My back of the napkin calculation has this coming in around 3,800 pounds.  No problem for a heavy duty 1 ton dually, just don’t attempt this with your standard half ton pickup truck.

But, no such luck, we had to cut the bands and unload the bundle one at a time.
