Many years ago, some friends gave us an old recycling bin (they had just been issued with wheelie bins) and over time, it has had numerous things stored in it, usually associated with our fire.
DB came to show me
it had badly cracked in two places. Was it thrown out, was it heck!
No, he disappeared to the garage and a few minutes later was back to
show me his 'stitching' handiwork, he was duly praised!
A few days ago I
posted about going into some woods to gather two carrier bags full of
pine cones that were just beginning to drop and were a little damp.
They were tipped out into a large compost bag tray (the plastic
things 2” deep x 4 feet long x 1 foot wide) and placed under the
car to slowly dry out. No wonder they had been so heavy to bring
This morning, we
went back to gather more before any wet weather returns, but this
time, only had one heavy duty bag for life with us. Once home, they
were tipped into repaired green container.
You can just see the two repaired cracks, back left and middle front.
