air drying

You might have caught a glimpse of the clothes line in that photo of our rain barrel. Here is a more direct shot. This side yard is about the only place we get sun, unless of course, we aired our undies in the front yard. ( that is our neighbors house in the background. They are pretty laid back and cool with it, but there are some communities that do not allow clothes lines.
I only bought one clothes line post, and used some pipe, soil screw anchors and odds and ends of chain and wire rope I had been hanging on to for years. The advantage of the odd looking arrangement is that I didn't have to do any concrete anchors, and it is quite stable. I could break it down in just a few minutes if needed.
So how many of you have a clothes line?

  1. No clothes line-I can only imagine how my Nazi neighbor would take it if I did. From the appearance of yours, it looks to really lean in-if I did that, any weight bearing on it would make it collapse-with you as the engineer I can see the weight makes it dig in and stabilize.Good job!
