    Good! The posts you have should suffice, then.
    If you decide down the road to put up a permanent fence, I'd suggest going to a longer, heavy duty post that has a length above the cleat (the flat plate near the bottom) equal to the height of the wire.

    Looks right from here. You might want to put a heavy duty post next to the gate, so you can stretch the wire fence tight without bending the posts you have.

    What kind of soil are you working with? Can you dig a hole fairly easily, or is it clay, or rock just below the surface
