Ryobi tools at HomeDepot review.

I own several Ryobi tools from Homedepot and I like all of them. The price was right and they get the job done around the home. I don't know if they are as rugged as some of the industrial tool brands but I have not been able to destroy them with my typically careless attitude. … Continue reading Ryobi tools at HomeDepot review.

Glenn’s Garden 2017 in March

This is the beginnings of my garden for the next thirty years or so.  The two bushes in the black smart pots are a Carmine Jewel Cherry and a Romeo Cherry.  I like these cherry bushes because they are almost indestructible and good into zone 2b.  I had one of them outside on a balcony … Continue reading Glenn’s Garden 2017 in March
