Vineyard Hardware - Episode 1

I bought some vineyard hardware off of craigslist.  I purchased a few different parts of the hardware needed to construct a trellis.  I still need to get wire and anchors, but this is a great start.
  • 50  2"X8' metal trellis posts
  • 50 trellis post top brackets
  • 50 trellis post lower brackets
  • 6 rolls of drip line with emitters
It was fun going to get the hardware.  The seller used his loader with forks to lift the poles en masse into the trailer.

Sagebrush removal and fertilizer

We endured another round of rototiller, and working on sagebrush removal.  This time we made great progress.  Using good tools sure does help!   I used a sawzall (reciprocating saw) with a small generator to help remove the sagebrush, and a bar to get down to the roots.  The fertilizer spreader worked really well.
