Kiwi Trellis at Russell Farm


... dough up grass and cleared rock garden for kiwi trellis.

now got to decide on exact placement of posts and structure for wires and location of vines.


The trellis will go over the concrete with one male kiwi over by the fense and two girls in the foreground.  They will crawl up and over the wires. 

see video

4 2' post holes already dug ... Jason cumming over today, we are going to sink the 4x4's in concrete and setup the trellis.  Just in time as my vines are hairing over their tops.

peculiar how this girl spirals around the wire quite on her own ... i wonder if she knows where she is going.

BTW I got some little (vine?) kiwis that they were giving away at the farmers' market at the end of last year & they sucked & didn't keep well.  I didn't like the taste either.  Hope your experience is much, much better!

Rustic lawn chairs or saw horses, eh?

Yes i got these new at a fair in Issaquah years ago and left them out in the weather unvarnished.  Structurally they are still very strong and functional and er rustically beautiful and make excellent saw horses .

Incidentally, trick question, how wide is a 4x4 ?
Well 4x4 's are not that anymore -  the length is how long you cut them.


Yep they are about 3.5 x 3.5 even though they are still marked 4x4 ... with a similar diminishing of the classical 2x4.  Thing was when i made my notch on top of the 4x4 for the 2x4 this became painfully clear ... me not having measured the standard before the cut ... i mean why would I not just assume that a thing would be just as labeled.  Doesn't matter, the trellis is quite strong enough ... just not quite as carpenter neat as i had expected.
