Friday Favorite: Nutscene Twine

February 15th, 2019

I’ve used just about every type of garden twine out there and Nutscene is definitely my personal favorite. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth the extra amount for a variety of reasons. For one, I find it last throughout a long season and often through the winter as well, which makes it nice for tying up perennial vines. The dispensing tin makes it so much easier to use, no dropping it and having it unravel and wrap itself around a few plants or under a rose bush. I’m a fan of the green color since it is much less visible in the garden, something that of particular importance to me since I sell photos of my garden.

For the past few years I’ve used a few other types of twine, thankfully Mr Chiots got me a can of Nutscene for Christmas. I’m happy once again to have a stock of my favorite twine. This size will last me a few years. If you haven’t tried it before give it a try, if you have a gardener in your life, consider this when you need a gift for them. You can also purchase refills for the tin in case you don’t need a new one, it’s cheaper that way as well.

Do you have any great garden supplies to recommend?

Friday Favorite: Floursack Towels

May 4th, 2012

Up until last year I always used normal terry kitchen towels. When we stopped at Seed Savers Heritage Farm last August I purchased a few of their vegetable flour sack towels. When I got home and started using them I quickly fell in love and all my other kitchen towels started collected dust in the drawer.

So what do I love about them? their large size, how quickly they absorb water, how quickly they dry and with these how beautiful they are! They are available at Seed Savers Exchange if you’re interested.


I’m going to have to purchase a few more of these this summer because I occasionally run out. My other kitchen towels will be demoted to rag towels when that happens.

Do you have a preference when it comes to towels that you use in the kitchen?
