The great tidy up has begun, and already I have lost two pair of scissors and a trowel. No idea where they are. They are down as MIA!
What items do you keep mislaying, and do you every find them?
Scissors! I have 2 pairs of garden scissors with orange handles, some days they both go missing...and then they both turn up, just as I'm considering buying some new ones.
As mentioned elsewhere, the joint thingamajigs for the big cloche. Can't find them anywhere
OH tidied the garage a couple of months ago
I am amazed at what turns up in my compost when I turn it out. Last time there were several knives and a bean shredder!
I try and buy garden equitment in red, it really helps with finding them against the green background!
i appear to have erm "collected" tools from other people, borrowed spades etc, oooops!
You'll never believe what I lost behind the tool shed!
Ah David, do let on, dying of curiosity here, and what I am imagining isn't humanly possible - surely?
I lose trowels all spring and summer, gather them up when autumn and winter comes, especially when planting bulbs. Cutting back shrubs sometimes reveals things - like the large roll of soft tie I misplaced months ago.
A pair of secateurs spent over a year in the compost heap, was renovated by OH only to be put through the shredder the following year.
A saw left hanging in a tree for 2 years is beyond renovation
Found a cheese slicer in our compost bin a few years ago - had been there two years, handle (wood) well pitted but still works better than any other!
