    Recently someone gave some scrap aluminum mosquito netting. I went to her shop looking for some parts to repair my kitchen cabinet shelf which had collapse. She told me she had some aluminum mosquito netting scrap and whether I wanted it. I did not know why I just said "OK" and I have no idea what need do I want it for ... more rubbish to keep?

    Not too long ago, my garden was raided by monkeys and as usual I lost all my lovely aubergine to them. I had made a cage to protect them but it was not used and clumsy. I was thinking there must be an easier way and voilĂ !

    Yes those aluminum mosquito netting scrap comes in handy. I hope I am not just monkeying around and that they will work. :)

    There's an old saying "waste not, want not". Looks like you've found a good use for those scraps. They look like a good deterrent against the monkeys. :like:
