I got these 4×2s free with the intention of building a fruit cage one year ago. I just got round to starting to build it. Today I dug a hole as far as I could go for each post – 15”; lots of clay and subsoil down there.
I needed something to go on the top so my neighbour gave me his mum’s old wooden banister, lol, and some other long bits of wood. I had some too and found I had enough except for one more to go across the centre, maybe, to support the netting better but I had no screws, no screwdriver, no skill and no ladder!
So here are the posts until I can find a way of putting the top on the cage. Meanwhile the temporary cages will have to stay until whenever I can get to doing the rest of it. I might have to get the netting in stages too because it might cost more than I think. Anyway, I think it’s a good job started.
The sunny day was ideal as we are forecast rain the rest of the week. The soil was lovely and soft, as I knew it would be, after such lavish rain.
