Natural Cordage

If proof were ever needed to the strength and longevity of natural fibres, then this may be exactly that.

I made the Nettle Cordage pictured back in May of this year, and since then it has been used to tie the Tomato plants up in the green house, the cordage has been sitting for over five months in a warm, damp atmosphere, which are of course, perfect conditions to rot natural fibres, when we took the Tomato plants down yesterday, this cordage was  as strong as the day i made it, if not stronger, I've tied to pull it apart with a straight pull and it just doesn't budge one iota, proof indeed to the strength of natural cordage, you never know, we might even get another season out if it next year - time will tell.
