|My egg basket|
One thing that exists in superabundance on most farms is baling twine. Over the years, I've tried many different ways to use the stuff so that it doesn't have to go into the landfill. I use it, of course, for all sorts of repairs. Here are some other things I've done with it:
- Made it into a rope. For this, I braided strands together, then braided the braids.
- Used it in fencing. I've tied up rails rather than nailing them. I've also tried tying it into squares to replace page wire, but this was just too time-consuming.
- Wove it into a porch mat.
- Tied up all sorts of plants in the garden.
