How do you tie a tent peg to a string?

There are three ways: move the tent peg, use a guy rope knot on the string, or use a toggle on the string.

It works just fine when the soil is soft, and it works very well with the harder strings like Spectra.

Should you leave the pegs of your tent pegs sticking out?
