Old Forks Find New Life

If you're like me, you have a few extra, mismatched forks in your drawer.  Of course, they can come in handy when you have a few more guests than expected, but they can also find new life in your garden.
Forks make great plant markers.  Use the tines to hold the seed packet or label and press the handle in to the soil.

Use a fork to gently pry up seedlings that are ready to be transplanted.

The fork also works in place of a garden shovel in pots or small areas.

Digging in the dirt

The basil plant is transplanted, watered and ready to grow in to it's new pot. 
Many extras items have second uses.  Be sure to think outside of the box, or in this case, outside of the silverware drawer. 
Be well and happy gardening
