I finally got around to digging out the old chain link fence. The two posts closest to the house came out relatively easily.
The two on the other side were a royal pain. I was doing this the morning that I had a storage shed built. The carpenter pushed on the post with his truck a little and that helped loosen them. It turns out they had long pieces of rebar securing them to the ground
They don't look that big in the photo, but for comparison's sake, here's my foot.
Here is the shed under construction.
And finished. Sort of. It still needs to be painted to match the house.
I was going to ask Roni for her thoughts, but the look on her face didn't inspire confidence.
