Day 12 - Fork
On my kitchen windowsill I have a glass filled with disposable wooden implements - lolly sticks, kebab sticks, chopsticks, spoons ... and these forks. Although designed to be thrown away after a single use I can never bring myself to do so. Instead I slip them in my bag, wash them and keep them until I find a use for them.
The lolly sticks make very good markers for newly sown seeds and the chopsticks very good supports for peas shoots. I suppose the spoons and forks would make quirky plant labels but today I fulfilled one of my long held intentions, when I took one of each, wrapped them in a plastic bag, and put them in my handbag. One day they'll save me from having to use a plastic spoon and fork when I'm out and about.
