Bamboo farm measuring poleUseful Measuring Pole

This might seem a bit too simple to even put on the site but this pole proved to be very useful for making farm beds and other farm work.

I found a piece of bamboo that had nodes (the solid ring looking area between hollow sections) that were almost exactly 2 meters apart. This is the same length as my 2 square meter beds I eventually used square beds in lieu of the straight line beds....ah another story.

Note: Be sure to cut the bamboo directly on the outer sides of each node (the solid ring looking area between hollow sections) which results in a closed piece of bamboo at each end and keeps soil and insects from getting into the hollow sections of the piece.
