Phase II is definitely a two person job: one person to stand on a ladder and pound in the stakes with a sledgehammer, while the person on the ground holds the stake steady. Place the stakes 8’ apart.
The Spy was a crucial part of this phase as he entertained his little sister with grass sledding and horsie rides!
We’ve only connected the deer fencing material to one of the stakes so far.
Phase III will include: attaching the deer fencing material to the rest of the stakes and building a gate. Here are a couple unrelated photos of the kale (Russian Red/Ragged Jack):
In other Spy Garden developments, the garden is now 100% edged out (and it only took all winter)! The “Back Nine” edging is completed:
Why do we call this area the “Back Nine” you ask?
Because Spy Garden sometimes feels about as large as an 18 hole golf course so by the time you make your way down to that corner! It is the northwest corner of the garden at the lowest sloped point and feels like the “back” of the garden.
AND because now that the plots have curves, they sort of resemble holes on a golf course. Except made of dirt instead of grass. Maybe that’s a stretch.
