All New Square Foot Gardening
All New Square Foot Gardening
by Mel Bartholomew
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, November 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Although I have yet to put any of these techniques into practice, this book was recommended to me by people who have, and have yielded bumper crops as a result. This book is a quick read, teaching easy to follow steps within a simple, yet highly effective gardening system.

I look forward to using these techniques in my garden come Spring!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy product, folding shank not for Subaru Forrester, September 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product comes unassembled, as you might expect. The packaging was better than described in some previous reviews in that it was double boxed. The color printed box came inside a larger brown box (the same my Curt hitch receiver arrived in).

On removing the items from the box, it is easy to scratch off some of the paint. This may be more of a concern in wetter climates, but since I live in an arid climate, this is less of a worry.

The only issue I have with the product is that the folding shank will not function with a 2011 Subaru Forrester. The basket hits the bumper, before the hole will line up to lock the basket in the raised position. I'm not too concerned about this fact, since I will generally only have the basket attached to the vehicle when I am using it. Also, without the folding shank, the basket sits closer to the vehicle, instead of sticking out an extra 18 inches.

The package comes with a non-locking hitch pin. I purchased one seperately in the same order, since it was not listed that it came with one.

Overall, I'm happy with the product, and impressed by Curt's sturdy construction and affordable price, in this and other products.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great concept album, March 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For those still living in denial bout the times in which we live, this album is not for you. It will only make you think and confront the paradigm to which you cling. Shooter brings a much needed dose of reality, mixed in with some really eclectic rock, drawing from a number of influences and sub-genres.

Interspersed between the music, Stephen King delivers some stark notions through spoken word. King plays the character Will O' The Wisp, a radio host delivering the last free radio broadcast to America, some time in the near future.

The music itself is varied and fits the premise of the album; a live radio broadcast. Influences could range from some definitely Pink Floyd-esque tracks, Rage Against the Machine, some beautifully harmonized country, even Alice in Chains, and more.

I for one, love, not only the music, but also the message. It comes at a time when the slumbering giant, the people of the United States, need to awaken and reclaim the country their forefathers fought so hard to establish. Before it's too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Tuner, January 27, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Korg are a market leader in tuner technology and this sturdy little stomp box is another great example of their quality. All the guys in my band use the Boss version of the same, but this looks way cooler, is cheaper and tunes quickly and accurately, without the bouncy needle/led issue that some tuners suffer from.

You can't go wrong with this great little pedal!

For under $4, this is a great deal. I'm no expert in Jeweler's Loupe technology, but it work exactly as I hoped... you put it to your eye and it makes stuff bigger. Nuff said!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this show, November 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Survivorman: Season 2 (DVD)
This show is awesome. I love the outdoors, and backpacking is one of my favorite activities. I hike in the mountains for days, with a 40+ pound pack, and plenty of creature comforts. He does this without any food or shelter, while carrying masses of camera gear and filming himself solo. Season 1 is also awesome.

I have a lot of cables that need constant coiling and un-coiling, tis the life of a musician/recording engineer. These make the job a lot easier.

Also work great for tidying up cables around the house, or keeping the cords tidy and untangled on appliances, whether plugged in or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2nd unit works ok, minor issues, March 29, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first unit i received had a garbage display that showed different sections of the LCD display with differing intensities, so bad you could not read it.

The second unit works ok, the remote thermometer loses connection from time to time (couple of times a day) and there is an issue with the maximum humidity reseting itself.

Other than that this product works fine. Just has the typical cheaply made in China low build quality.
