I’ve given one planter to each kid so they’re responsible for tending to their gardens. Here’s hoping we get to reap a bountiful harvest of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, and cauliflower! 🥦 (why is there no Brussels sprouts emoji?! 👎🏼) Grab the plans and tutorial for these planters on the blog!

The PT18G Pneumatic Brad Nailer is the perfect companion for most small trim and interior molding work. #MadeWithArrow
We have a #MadeWithArrow tip of the day, folks! When using one of Arrow’s electric tools like the ET200BN Professional Electric Nailer, the contact safety needs to be fully depressed before the tool will fire. This means you *must* pick up the front of the tool each time before firing another shot.
