DIY Berry Picker: This berry picker is made out of PVC pipe. Heat is used to shape the plastic. Two "fingers" at the working end do the picking. The berry then falls through the pipe and lands in a plastic bag tied to the other end.
Use an old tire to create a small backyard pond. My kids, 3 sons, have been helping with yard work and planting. They keep asking for a pond. I think this is a great DIY project to do outside with them. Looks simple.
