“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

I'm itching to garden ... but must wait, and wait. So while waiting, I'm researching a few new gardening gadgets to try this coming spring. This wall of water product (through Burpee) has piqued my interest! A neighbor of mine swore by them last year. She was the only one in our area with vine ripened tomatoes. While ours didn't even begin to ripen until late September ... early October ... picked green and stored in the basement.

Hello Mrs. mac,
I'm sure you'll come up with a good idea for better products.
I, on the other hand, have not yet spread my ten sacks of soil to cover up the plants from frost.

I promise next time when it is raining outside, I'll get it done.
Just now the soil is frozen to stone...

this is news to me....and rather amazing. Who wouldn't want their tomatoes to ripen earlier?
