Top wire attachment hardware. A cable clip, a modified S hook, and a welded ring. Bits of sisal rope and it's a done deal.
Image center. A 1"x10'-0" piece of EMT. I drilled a hole through the top and bolted in a carriage bolt. I used/will use this to hook the bolt head into the ring so that I can lift it off the hook for harvest. A little akward to maneuver but it works well.
Ooops. Almost forgot to show the drop lines.
Side project #1. The compost bin. Some old commercial real estate signs saved from the trash bin (by permission). I plan to keep the hop yard organic if possible. To date (this year), no chemical fertilizers have been used. Only compost, manure, and wood ash.
My next side project will be the drying oast. I cam upon a large pile of particle board sheets this weekend. Look to be from a garage shelving system. I'll have to clean them up from all the nails and see just how much useable wood is left. As it is now I have about 40 - 5' x 2' x 3/4" pieces.
BTW, This 4 image per post thing is annoying. Does it go away with a paid membership? I gotta do that.
