A reader asked me to show a few pics of the rebar handrail I did for the deck and how it had aged.
I had initially sprayed the whole deck and rebar with a light coat of thinned linseed oil. This lasted for a while but some rust is showing on it now. I need to clean everything this fall, go over the rebar with a wire brush and then respray it all. However, it looks fine; just a bit darker than when new.
I've actually been using the rebar to grow cucumbers and such, as a trellis. It works pretty good.
I have more tomato plants, herbs and flowers all along the railing to the right. With all the green everywhere, everything kinda blends together! But you get the idea. Of course, you can click on any picture to enlarge it and maybe see a little more detail.
I'm still feeling pretty bad so not up to full posting speed yet. Hopefully, I will be back at it again soon. In the mean time, stay cool! or warm, depending on what hemisphere you are in! Is there anything else someone would like to see or ask about the goings on here?
