The Roger’s Red Great Grape Vine was getting so big and the fence posts so rotten, that it was threatening to tip the whole fence over. So, the vine was pruned back rather severely.
My friend and neighbor, Phil, who knows how to fix things properly, arrives.
The fence is braced and the post holes are dug.
The tall metal new posts are inserted and pounded into place. When the lattice or the fence itself needs replacing, the poles will still serve as a quasi arbor to support the vine’s arms.
And braced with metal straps.
The concrete is mixed and dumped.
Below is a shot of the highly skilled expertise and critical technical assistance I brought to this whole project.
VOI LA! Now I wait for rain and soon The Great Vine will awaken and spread her glorious leaves all over a sturdy , upright fence. And I will dream of savoring sips of fierce, intense, ruby-red grape juice come summer.
