Review of Flower Pot Heater

I would give the Flower Pot Heater five stars as a useful and enjoyable project, but only if you keep a couple of factors in mind.

A painful lunchtime phone call

So during my lunch time break I tried to take care of a few home things, one being calling our local propane provider to set up a delivery.  Tank is at 4% and better to have the propane a year early than a day late.  The painful part is that propane here locally is now at $2.89/gallon.  With a 100 gallon minimum for delivery.  I spoke with the office manager briefly and she said this is the highest she has ever seen the price of propane.

inexpensive woodstove tools

We heat our home with an airtight wood-burning stove. You have to clean the ashes out, and in really cold weather you have to clean out ashes when the stove is running, hot. We have a nice steel ash bucket (a coal hod purchased from a local hardware store for about $15), and we have two ash shovels, both the decorative one and a larger, more practical one.
