Luster Leaf 1820 Rapitest Soil Moisture Meter: How Not To Drown Your Plants!

What I like about this Luster Leaf 1820 Rapitest Soil Moisture Meter is that it has a wand separate from the meter itself, which you can stick into the dirt. It makes it much easier to read than the temporary replacement moisture meter I purchased at my local garden supply store that has the wand extending from the bottom of the meter. I have hanging house plants and simply could not read the meter that way. So I highly recommend this one, which also comes with a guide that indicates how much to water a variety of plants. No more checking the top of the soil with my finger, thinking the plant needed water, and killing it with over-watering.

Lodge Logic Pre Seasoned Sportsman’s Charcoal Grill: A Grill Made To Last

Made with durable, even-heating cast iron, this Lodge Logic Pre Seasoned Sportsman’s Charcoal Grill works great for picnics, tailgating, car camping, or anywhere a self-contained outdoor cooking source is needed. The unit’s cooking grate is also made of cast iron–a treasured cooking material that heats slowly yet retains its heat for long periods of time, making it far more efficient than aluminum or steel grates. The grill’s cooking surface measures 17-1/4 by 9 inches and comes seasoned and ready to use. Easily temper the cooking speed of food by rotating the grate away from the heat source. The grill has two adjustable heights, along with a draft door that regulates the heat–so in addition to frying or grilling, the unit can warm a pot of coffee or chili. Coals are accessible behind a flip-down door. Other convenient features include four steady legs, a useful carrying handle, and a simple-to-clean design–just hand wash with a stiff brush and hot water.

First Alert PIR720RN Motion Sensing Light Socket: Ideal For Home Lighting

The First Alert Motion-Sensing Light Socket quickly and easily transforms an ordinary light socket into a motion-sensing socket. This First Alert PIR720RN Motion Sensing Light Socket device will automatically turn on a light when it senses movement, and it will turn off the light after movement is no longer detected. This means you can finally stop worrying about fumbling for a light switch when your hands are full or finding a hard-to-reach pull-string in the dark. Able to operate in broad daylight or pitch-black darkness, this light socket features a 360-degree motion sensor that will detect a person approaching within twelve feet when installed at an eight-foot height. To achieve maximum motion sensitivity, use the handy arrows marked on the unit to determine the strongest response, adjusting the 180-degree points to face a door or other high-traffic area as needed. With the First Alert Motion-Sensing Light Socket, you can get the convenience of automatic lighting without the expensive installation. Just screw the motion-sensing socket directly into an existing light socket, and then fasten the light bulb into the new fixture.

Woodstock Wind Chimes: Precision Tuned Using A Sophisticated Digital Analysis

The sounds of nature are sweet, but the music of chirping birds, chattering squirrels, and rustling leaves is even sweeter when accompanied by Woodstock’s Gregorian alto computer-tuned wind chimes. These Woodstock Wind Chimes play medieval alto notes inspired by the Gregorian chants of Europe. Company founder Garry Kvistad has developed an advanced method of tuning used on every Woodstock chime: each tube is analyzed digitally with a microphone under the tube measuring the frequency, and cutters are instructed to remove just the right amount of material to produce the most precise tuning possible. The result is a purer, more harmonious sound. All Woodstock wind chimes are made in the USA from nonendangered hardwoods treated to endure season after season of outdoor use. Woodstock prides itself on being a socially responsible company, explaining that "through the sale of our chimes we proudly support the arts, as well as many environmental and humanitarian causes." Add a hint of Gregorian mystery to your yard or garden while contributing to the harmony of the earth.
