Centurion Powerful Link-Force Double-Gear Drive Lopper: Product Review


I’m a big fan of this lopper and highly recommend it, although it’s probably not the best choice for those who are petite or have limited upper body strength.

Plus, unlike other expandable hoses, it stretches to a full-size 5/8 inch diameter and 50 feet in length. With a 5-year warranty and no signs of wear after almost a year of extensive use in the garden, it’s clearly Continue Reading

Tomato Success Kit from Gardener’s Supply: Product Review


This self-watering planter and support cage works well for growing tomatoes, especially when grow in the organic potting mix and tomato fertilizer that comes with the kit. The 4-gallon reservoir means that you don’t have to water as often and the fill spout is large enough to make filling the reservoir a breeze. Of all the tomato growing kits or planters I’ve tested, this is the one I like best. Continue Reading
