I remember my very young brother watching my Gardening Granny spiking the lawn with a fork. She left the fork outside when she went inside to do something - before anyone noticed little brother picked up the fork (he was a strapping lad) and plunged it into the lawn just as his Granny had done - sticking it right through his Clarkes sandal, through his foot and into the lawn!!!
A mad dash to A&E and a series of tetanus injections followed - he's not been keen on gardening since!
