And hang one for garden tools. After a day of digging, wash them off and hang in the bag to dry, so they don't have dried mud/dirt on them the next time you need to use them.

DH has been working on a shed for our back yard. He is making it from repurposed fence lumber. I was watching him work today since I'm not allowed to play with his power toys.
When I buy 3 pounds of onions, they come in a mesh kind of bag. But as time rolls along, the onions' skins come off, fall out of the bag and make a mess. I found that using a 8 pound naval orange mesh bag seems to keep the skins from going everywhere.

How can you use plastic mesh produce bags to secure fresh or silk flowers? I have a tall glass vase and need to secure the silk flowers as I place them inside of it. I have a lot of the plastic mesh produce bags, so I tried to tape a piece of the mesh on the opening of the vase. It didn't work. I thought it would be a good idea to use the mesh since it looks similar to a type of mesh florists use to secure flowers inside vases.
Have you considered putting a floral sponge in the bottom of the vase to hold the flowers in place. This way you can arrange your mesh around the opening of the vase, then add your flowers, and finish the job off with arranging the mesh in peaks or how ever you want it to look.
Do your silk flowers with same length stems or are you trying to use fresh or silk flowers with different length stems?
