This is almost as good as an Ikea catalog. So many things to build.

The only thing stopping a person is imagination. I loved their products.

!!!

Last year, I conceptualized a device to hold up low-growing or laden fruit tree branches.

I could neither find anything online, nor figure out how to build it.

Now, thanks to has55, the idea becomes feasible, after all!

I'll be interested to see what you conceptualized.

Unfortunately, I cannot draw!

What I visualized, however, was a stake with a fork at the top to hold fruit tree branches, either to keep them off the ground, or to support fruit-bearing branches

I did present the concept to an online gardening company, and they thought it was a great idea.  They even found a vendor of a similar product in England, and said they'd look into becoming a supplier.  So far, no news.

That's what I saw, although it isn't exactly what I'd previously visualized.  Still, it should do the trick, and not be very expensive.
