Fence post protection (on top)?
What do you folks use to protect the tops of your fence posts from water/rot? My vegetable garden is fenced with 4x4s so those plastic caps work perfectly, but my orchard is fenced with round posts of various thickness and they are cut flat. Unfortunately there is no room to cut them on a slant to let the water drain off.
I've see some local farms with a metal cap that is cut and nailed to the tops. They look custom made and probably require more effort than I'm willing to spend.
Is there an easier solution? Can I paint the tops with something?
