Working on the old raised strawberry bed in anticipation of the new water feature for the expanded habitat garden. I am forced to grudgingly salute the farmer/engineer who designed these metal fence posts.... obviously over-engineered to "STAY IN THE GROUND".

My dad put up a fence around the farthest part of the back yard. Across the alley was a parking garage for an apartment building. They would frequently back into the yard when coming out of the garage. He dug holes 3 feet deep, filled them with concrete and put the metal post in the concrete and let it harden. I was 10 or so. Those posts are still standing. And yes, many of the apartment occupants bitched about denting their bumpers backing into the fence. But they didn't drive into the garden.

I made one that was stacked once. It worked out very well. Especially for planting and picking. Cut the stretching part completely out.

@bigpawbullets You got to earn that wine somehow, kiddo!

LOL., I'll have to stick with my cannabis. My stomach doesn't allow alcohol anymore. And there was nothing any better than a good glass of homemade wine.


I took a sawzall to 2 of those. Must have been 6 feet deep I figure.

I considered that Ami.
But with my luck I'd run into the "stump" later on.


My husband was a fencer for years and this is what they used with a chain it pulls them right out of the ground.

Just got the last one up. Thank G..... whoops.

Better than wiggling them back and forth forever or trying to dig them out.

@Alvinsmama oh yeah so much better and quicker.


Well it looks like they were put in deep enough, You might have to take more wine breaks.
