You know that awful “Yikes!” feeling you get when you realize you’ve just yanked the hose over a nice bed of lettuce or seedling tomatoes?
The other day I was looking at some leftover spindles from a porch rail project and decided to use them to solve my problem.
It’s so easy to do and the turning on the spindles makes them look a little fancier than just plain 2×2’s would have been (although that would work, too).
I just cut off the top section right above the turning, sanded it smooth, and screwed the shortened spindles to the corners of the raised beds where they will do the most good.
No more walloped vegetables!
