Thank you to Susan Reimer with the Baltimore Sun for posting such a nice article regarding my article about Haws watering cans. I admit, I thought they wer for snooty gardeners - but I have been won over. It is a must have for anyone that owns a plant!
Please check out her blog, it is a fantastic read and resource.

Tool time: Haws watering can

Ross Svebak, a lifestyle blogger from Minnesota, pays tribute to the Haws watering can in a recent post.
You know these watering cans, even if you don't know the maker. They have the long arm and the upside-down watering head.
He says he resisted buying one for years because he thought they were the stuff of snooty gardeners, but then received one as a gift.
He writes a bit of history about the Haws company, too, which began with John Haws application for a patent in 1885. Check it out.
