Well, I like these. I have three of them set up on a concrete area in our backyard. They are simple to set up- open and dump in dirt- plant seedlings or plants bought at garden center- water. Perfect for someone is rather busy and has only an afternoon to set up a garden. Also good for me that doesn't have the physical ability to build a raised bed garden. They also can be moved around- not that I will be doing this much but you could move them to find optimal growing potential.

Our tomato plant is thriving and so did three types of lettuce and herbs- various basil plants, tarragon, thyme but we are having trouble with the zucchini and peppers. (I know! I thought it was hard to mess up zucchini)

O.k. so I only have a two month old so I am new at this and just figuring it out. I have a slim cell phone case that has a slot that fits two cards... my id and my debit card. That way when I slip my phone in my back pocket "I" am ready to go I keep gum, chap-stick and a compact of powder in the car which means I don't need a purse and will now be adding to this "car stash" because of the advice above. Thanks!

Almost all of the recipes on this site are gluten free as one of her children can't tolerate it.

I have found it to be funny and most of the recipes I have tried are very tasty...

I have 2 vintage fiberglass HM shells and just bought 2 Modernica shells to complement. While the Modernica ones are new with a bit less age they seem to me the same quality and I am very happy with them.

I have noticed... that the Eiffel Tower bases are different between the new Modernica and new DWR/Herman Miller. Has anyone noticed this difference?

My issue is that I have 2 36 inch cabinets and most of these roll out shelves install into the sides of the cabinets and work wonderfully for narrow spaces but aren't particularly useful for a large area like that. Does anyone have experience with roll out drawers that actually divide a space and install onto the bottom of the shelf itself?
Thanks in advance for any help or advise!

It is a little hard to see exactly what is going on in the photo but my first thought was... to flip the desk to the other side of the shelves so it was more in the middle of the space...with a desk chair that looks like a living room chair behind it under the window. Maybe two comfy chairs and a small table in between all set to the left side of the photo. It seems like it would be nice to balance the largeness of the shelves. A large rug underneath with coordinated accessories to bring it all together would be nice too.

I have my eye on the green one (1st image second row). I think it may be from Urban Outfitters. Fun Fun.

Check out Alexander Calder's wire works for inspiration. (A google image search brings up a bunch) There was an exhibit at the Whitney last year that was amazing. I remember using something called bailing wire in college to make wire sculptures. Don't remember where we found it. I think it is a typical farm supply.

I love this... in the middle of a kitchen remodel and wondering what to make w/o a stove. This iced tea is perfect, especially on these hot days. Think I will try mine with mint. Thanks for reminding me of this.
