|The original Dig to China Spoon|
First we had to dig two holes - one for each pole - and prep the hole for concrete. This is not a job for the official Dig to China Spoon, so we broke out our sturdy power tool, the post hole digger.
After the hole was dug, we had to widen it ever so slightly for it to be the correct size for the cardboard tube. We got one 8-foot tube that we then cut into two four feet tube. Each tube went ALL THE WAY into the ground. Which meant that we had to dig over four feet down. Yes folks, that's pretty close to China.
We had several supervisors and critics, yet The Lovey and his engineer mind was his own worst critic as usual. I think we did a fabulous job making these holes and setting the poles. The clothesline is that much closer to a reality! YAY!!!
