Necessity is the mother of invention, as the saying goes, and I know your necessities must have inspired some handy inventions around the garden.  I've already told you that I start some seeds in egg cartons and others in newspaper seed pots, but I don't believe I've mentioned using an old tennis racket to sift my compost. 

Tell me about gardening aids and shortcuts you've created using ordinary household items, and you might get a mention here on the blog and in my Newsday column.
