Life Cycle Gardens’ Garden on Wheelz lets you take your garden where you need it.
The raised garden’s wheelbarrow-like design allows it to be moved easily, so it could be wheeled to a shady spot for weeding or harvesting and then back into the sunshine the rest of the time.
Its legs can be adjusted in height from 30 1/2 to 37 inches, allowing the gardener to work either sitting or standing.
The mobile garden also has a water reservoir and a recycling system that catches water runoff for reuse. It’s made of food-grade plastic and provides 5.25 cubic feet of growing space.
The Garden on Wheelz has a suggested retail price of $299. It’s currently available at www.LifeCycleGardens.com and Amazon.com and is expected to be available in stores and from other online retailers.
ON THE SHELF
Everybody makes mistakes. But in knitting, those mistakes can be a pain to fix. That’s where When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters comes in.
The knitting survival guide, an updated version of the book first published in 2007, offers guidance to knitters who’ve gone astray. Authors Marion Edmonds and Ahza Moore, both veteran knitters and teachers, offer tips for preventing problems in the first place, diagnoses for common knitting problems and methods for dealing with emergencies — all with a good dose of humor and all-is-not-lost reassurance.
Edmonds and Moore have also included handy extras such as a chart of emergency substitutions for knitting tools, and they’ve added a chapter to this edition introducing some new techniques. And, of course, they’ve included instructions for a few projects, because what would a knitting book be without them?
When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters is published by the Taunton Press and is priced at $21.95 in paperback.
