Putting a Nailgun to good use

Changable spring weather is a real promisebreaker sometimes.  Wind, then sun, then wind, then...today...a FROST!  The frost fans were whirring away at 5:30am this morning, but I didnt hear them.  When I got up at 7am, I rushed outside to turn the sprinklers on in the garden, because our grapes all have flower bunches on.  Imagining the worst, I have decided to kill two birds with one stone.

Or...two problems with one net.  I was pleased with the net purchase off trademe, on a few tiny holes, which are easily fixed with a peg or two.  300m of it should do all jobs that need netting for the summer.

The netting should both hinder the frost and hinder the pesky birds who peck all the fruit and flowers!

Hubby's nailgun came in very handy, and I was very proud of myself for the design!
