I have several old pitch forks that were sitting around doing nothing since they lost there handles.
I was also destroying several of my nice plants. CLICK ! ! !
I decided to make use of these as plant protectors
I really like that! I just recently cut some lengths of rebar and pounded them into the ground at the corners of my garden beds. But I've already skinned my arm tripping over one of them. I think your pitch forks are much safer and nicer looking!
