I envy the quality of your soil where you are able to shove the rebar into the ground so easily! Our quick hoop rebar supports involved a sledge hammer and a lot of cursing and sweating from Hubby to knock them into our stony soil securely. They will remain where they are for the entire year, rather than getting moved around or removed during the growing season.
