We had to go to town today, as I had an eye exam. After feeling nauseated a bit after getting my pupils dilated, I wasn’t in the mood for much. We stopped by McD for a snack, and I was feeling a bit better.
But, we stopped by Rural King to just browse a bit, and get some of their free popcorn. I was planning on leaving pretty soon after getting there, and so was the Mrs. She went out to the car while I made the “mistake” of drifting into the hardware dept. Oh no.
Before I knew it I had corralled a cart and was loading up stuff to make my trellis setup for our incoming raspberry and blackberry plants. I wanted to prepare a proper home for them, so that they won’t get too unwieldy when they’re 10ft high/ long.
After much deliberation, I ended getting four 50ft lines of plastic covered wire clothesline, 8 wire tensioners/turnbuckles, 16 plain eye bolts w/nuts and assorted washers. I’m going to use this hardware to mount 2x4 crossbeams to my T-posts I already have and make a two level trellis.
After about an hour, I managed to find my way to the front and pay for the stuff. While checking out, the Doodette showed up and said, “Oh there you are. I was out in the car for an hour wondering what had happened to you. I heard an ambulance go by and wondered if it was for you.” I think she was kidding.
