Instead of whining about our awful projects today, I thought, for a change of pace, I would mention a purchase we've been very happy with.
We strive—not always successfully—to keep the kitchen counters as clean and clear as possible. One dilemma we had to solve was how to deal with food scraps waiting to go out to the compost bin.
I found this nice crock at Gardener's Supply Company in spring and decided to give it a try. Shipping was fairly expensive, almost $10 on the $30 purchase, but we've been quite happy with the crock overall. And it looks a whole lot more attractive than the plastic tub we had on the counter last winter.
