Garter belts, garters and old-fashioned stockings with no elastic may be the height of sexual attire these days, but to women who grew up before the invention of pantyhose they were often considerably less than desirable. Which is why that invention may well be considered one of the most important in history to women of a certain age. Pantyhose is probably not considered the godsend to feminine attire to the bulk of the female majority anymore, but it is an invention that should definitely be held in high esteem by those who garden regardless of gender. If you do not include a pantyhose among your essential gardening tools, you may be working harder than necessary.
The plain, simple truth of the gardening matter is that you cannot find a much more effective filtering device than pantyhose. Even some dedicated filters probably do not work quite as well as a pair of plain pantyhose. If you use pesticide in your gardening tasks and need to filter your concoction, you can just stretch the material over the opening of your container and get the job done quickly and with little mess. The same goes for straining fertilizer and any of the other myriad assortments of solutions that make up the world of gardening.
If you want to make sure that rats, mice and other rodent intruders into your gardening plans stay safely away from your business, introduce the miracle of synthetics into your approach. Common rodents pests that make gardening a hassle are less than fond of the fibers that are used in the process of making pantyhose. If you store your stockpile of seeds inside a piece of pantyhose, you are effective building a great big immigration wall that is not an expensive boondoggle. Your Great Wall of Pantyhose will be a million times more effective at keeping the rodent population from becoming an immigration problem than the plans for that big wall down there on the Mexican border could ever hope to be. Rodents will instantly be repelled away from your stockpiles thanks to their dislike of the synthetic material used to make pantyhose.
Pantyhose is uniquely well-suited for those who grown bulbous vegetables requiring particular conditions for storage like onions and garlic. To avoid conditions that stimulate the process of rotting for these vegetables, storage conditions need to remain cool and dry. Even better is if that storage location can remain dark. Unfortunately, such conditions are not particularly suited for efficient retrieval of onions and garlic. You can easily take advantage of ideal dark, cool and dry conditions by dropping a bulb into the pantyhose and then tying it into a knot. Then drop another bulb and repeat and continue doing so until the pantyhose is filled. Once you need to retrieve the onion or garlic, just cut the pantyhose off below the knot and carry the bulb back to the kitchen. The pantyhose not only allows for more efficient storage, but after a few visits you will be able to do this in the dark without even having to turn on the lights, thus extending the life of your bulbous garden delights even longer.
