Ma here. A few years ago, Pa spotted this cart in the road ditch on a trip into the city. We determined if it was still there when we drove back by it would be ours. Well, it was, and it got dropped on my head loading it into ole Blue, earning it it’s name. Continue reading

I saw these Rooter Pots a while back and thought I might like to give them a shot. I made the purchase and then researched them. I didn’t find much on them so I hope that’s not a terrible thing. They are basically a special built tool for air layering. I have tried with a plastic bottle and I have tried with plastic Continue reading
