    Would you then consider yourself an curn-oisseur?

    It was there. I know. I need to go be creative now, right?

    I was literally just thinking of watching your soil block-making video the other day, because I’m a little behind on seed starting and I need to get the show on the road. I read all of your gardening posts the week I found your blog so….I guess I’m one of the three!

    I, too, hate things other people think are fun. And sure, Hawaii’s beautiful, but I can Google it and enjoy the beauty without subjecting myself to a) airports, b) heat, and c) the sun. Pale northern European people were not meant for sunshine.

    Call me crazy… I loved that video and I’ve never seen anything like that, nor did I know you could do that on your own or that such a tool existed. If I’m being honest, I think what I loved most is seeing Elvis under the heat/light. <3

      I’ve never seen that either. Very cool tool and the cat had the best idea. Who needs sun when you have the warmth of lights. 🙂

    Fabulous urn! It would such a pity to paint it white, but I love the idea of rust http://www.porterspaints.com/paints/speciality-finishes/liquid-iron–instant-rust

    Now I need an urn…and a kitten. Though, I feel like the 4 other cats I already have would disagree (about the kitten part at least.) I LOVE reading all your posts – thanks for sharing!

    Gorgeous urn!! And I actually enjoyed your video. Where did you get the tool that makes the blocks?

    I actually saw a cow bench at an ice cream place the other day. At least there is one place that it fits into.

    Love the urn! There are people who watch gardening videos. I just watched your seed starting video.
    Well done. There are even people who get paid for making gardening videos and I’m one of them!

    I actually watched that video way back when, even though I kill all the plants just by looking at them. Because every other year or so, I get it into my head that the problem is that I haven’t tried (made it complicated) enough. So I watch videos, read up, shop for all the insane tools… and then I spend too much money for zero surviving plants and remember why I shouldn’t even try. Throw everything away, rinse and repeat.

    In alternate years, it occurs to me that if I saved the money I spend on these insane attempts, I could just be paying a team of really competent gardeners, and I’d have the yard of my dreams anyway. But then I start thinking how cool it would be to have an indoor greenhouse and off I go.

    Ha! I love your blog and watch/read gardening posts too! Especially if we are talking vegetables and herbs! Kitten with socks and urn…perfect!

    Such a serious, very useful video! I may have my husband do the same as it would make me feel efficient and green thumb-like. Always a pleasure to find you in my ‘inbox’.

    I wanted you to know that I really loved your post on soil blocks. In fact, It looked to be so easy and a lot more fun than filling little starter pots (which then have to be cleaned and stored for another year) that I immediately bought one and can’t wait to give it a try.
    PS: reading your blog is something I truly enjoy. it makes my day and never fails to put a smile on my face 😊
    PPS: I guess I’m one of the three!

    I think you should go to sculpt nouveau, buy some copper metal coating, paint it, then put tiffany patina on it and leave it in the crevices only. No, I don’t work for them. I just make a lot of stuff(steampunk, anyone?) that needs to look aged or like metal but isn’t.

    For some of us old folks, the orange is very hard to read. Perhaps make it bold?

    As a fellow bed and home lover I completely agree! No way I could make an 18 hour flight to Hawaii! Yea! I am not alone!

    Love the Urns! I have a rusty white one that I inherited. My Mom got it on our trip to Illinois from Washington State, and it rode on the top of our ’62 Chevy station wagon all the way home! What do you put underneath the urn to protect your wood floor? Will you have Paul make you a pretty oak platform with moulding on the sides?
