Lauren, thanks for posting this. I had an order from 20 months ago (when they were $10 each) that they hadn't yet filled due to manufacturing issues. Looks like they're still trying to figure out the price point for growth. Just called them and they bumped me to the top of the shipping list for next week, so they're a good small company that could use our support.

Michelle, thank you for a timely article. I've got dwarf espalier apple next to my drive ledge; would this type of pruning apply so I can plant more espaliers close to each other? Or even staggered on the tree plane?

Way cool tables, but $3,195 for each? So there is no more value in the "design with concerns for mankind's disruption of bird migration patterns and light pollution" than in the minimal version?

At first glance I thought the window was a door and I now see that you probably enter through the bottom of the water drop.

I hope our wool rug stops shedding as it's going on its sixth month in our home (plus a year from the previous owner). I'd love to hand it down to my grandkids.

Is it 8" around? I can't imagine a 13" rope attaching, with slack, to an 18" diameter bucket. They need to fix their etsy info.

My nephew was a missionary in Bolivia, and when he returned he lavished all the beautiful hand-made clothing and blankets upon his immediate family. The craftsmanship is quite nice.
