New use for old wooden dolly pegs.

  Brumas 23:24 13 Oct 2009

I have just planted a couple of dozen tulip and daffodil bulbs and wondered how I would remember where I had planted them, being faced with just a level expanse of featureless soil.

Never one to throw useful articles away, I remembered the basket of old pegs languishing in the carport. They are just the job, so now I cannot possibly dig them up inadvertently in the Spring as they are so prominently marked.

Anyone else found an alternative use - remember this is a family forum ;o) - for them?

..the prunings from the Buddleias. After trimming I have a large number of long straight sticks for use around the garden as canes etc. I stack them in the corner of the greenhouse to dry out so that they don't take root when stuck into the ground later.

By the paucity of the number of responses I take it that most of you just either, chuck them away or use plastic clothes pegs.

paint fasces on them and put on little cloth dresses and string for hair ;)

"paint fasces on them"

hope that's meant to be what I think it is

Years ago I used to line them up on the clothes line and take pot shots at them with an air rifle... that used to make a great competition with school friends:)

innocent slip of the finger ;)

We believe you, don't we folks?

Better wash that finger - using lots of soap!

Why? He hasn't spelt it right anyway.

'Faces' ... As in 'Dolly Peg'
