Holding up a broken fence post

fixing a fallen post with a metal short cut

When the walnut tree fence post fell it took out another one close by.

It pushed back in place, but needed some help staying up.

I've seen the Power Company shore up a pole this way, and with any luck the 14 gauge galvanized wire will hold it in place for many years in the future.

Daniel --- Thanks for your interest, but the figs I've been rooting recently were actually swapped from a friend. I might have some Chicago Hardy this summer/fall if you're interested, though.
