Re: SwampRat's adventures in suburban gardening.

Thanks for the link, I'll definitely check it out later. Most of my experience is with open ground farming so the last year has been an experiment in containers and raised beds.

SOG Power Lock, 30 bucks!
Cheapest I could find them elsewhere was 60.
There is also a Power Assist for 20 bucks. I snagged one of each.

Re: SwampRat's adventures in suburban gardening.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004S0KVF2/ref=cm_sw_r_an_am_ap_am_us?ie=UTF8 This is what that is. Its a similar material as landscaping cloth, but much thicker. I bought a few to see how they work. So far so good. There are two of them with 3 root crowns each. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I727 using Tapatalk
