Husband and I used to erect three, 10 foot long, steel hog panels in the garden for the peas to grow up. We secured the panels to thin, plastic coated metal poles using wire. The panels worked great, but they got too heavy to move and too bulky to store, so, the for past couple of years we have used plastic poultry netting stapled to wooden poles for the peas to grow up.
This year the wooden poles are tall, thin, and not very straight or stable. I put the fence up, and it looks very crooked and has lots of droopy gaps. The finicky, Dutch part of me cringes when I look at it. It will do for the peas, though, and I have every confidence that no rancher in his right mind will ever ask me to help him with fencing. It is nice to think that is one responsibility I will never have.
What skill do you lack that you either wish you had or you are glad you don’t possess?
