I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Wire coat hangers get a new lease on life

I needed to peg down some bird netting the other day.  Last time I did this I bought small tent pegs from one of those discount stores.

Today I made may own.  I just used a couple of old wire coat hangers, cut and bent them into shape.

I wouldn't like to try them with a tent or in hard ground.  However they are perfect for my purpose.

 My dad taught me that tent pegs work best when pushed in at a 45 degree angle to the strain.  These are doing a great job holding down the bottom of the net.

  1. Good idea. I tend to use old bits of brick. Okay, it's not pretty, but who wants pretty when you need to eat?

    I save all my old junk, because I know in a moment of madness I will find a way to use it!
