I have my tomato tree planted.  This is the metal part, not the tomato part.

I had started with component parts.  These were assembled into a tree.

Next, I needed a hole.

It was a good hole.

The post-hole digger got me down to the grey clay. After that I needed a crow-bar and a good shovel. Because I was going deep.

Yes, it’s a real two-and-a-half foot hole.

I hate grey clay.

After the hole was completed, the technician tuned the components.

Raising it up

Position it carefully

And slam it home.

The workman is proud.

This is what it will look like once the buckets are on the tree

No buckets were harmed in the making of this tomato tree (yet).
