I love these bags. I immediately repurposed them to hold fruits and vegetables and get them out of those nasty plastic bags quickly when they get home from the grocery. They hold a lot of weight on the string. I’m always short of space and hung potatoes and onions on the heavy mantlepiece in my darkest and coolest room. I quickly ordered 25 more of them.
These bags are bigger than i expected but i was concerned with getting smaller ones as i am going to use them for my grapes. Not sure if they will help but the animals have eaten all of my grapes the last few seasons and i would love to get a few for myself this year!
I tied these over my peaches when they were tiny and for the first time managed to harvest ripe, beautiful fruit. The bugs and birds left them alone. After a strong wind, I did have to got out and tie the bags back on, but it was easy. These bags are larger than what is needed for peaches, but still worked wonderfully.
The bags protected my blueberries and cherry tomatoes. I plan to use them for my cantaloupe seedlings also for my Natchez blackberries and my grapes.
I didn't even get past the yard when I received these finely meshed drawstring bags. I immediately bagged several pomegrates so the squirrels couldn't destroy them. So far, they are effective. Also fine enough to keep some moths and small flies out, to keep the fruit from eggs being laid. Next season, when I have fruit budding, these bags will go on right away so I don't lose another season's fruit to "varmints".
