I’ve been considering putting a few lights in the backyard. I’m not talking about extending power to the garden patch, but just a few stakes with solar-powered lights in them. I would then be able to take out compost after dark without tripping.
I bought an inexpensive wind chime that had such a light in it, and the darn thing never worked. I guess I got what I paid for in that case.
When I saw the tiny (about 6 inches tall) canning jar facsimiles in a specialty store, I thought about getting a few.
I looked more closely. The adorable little mason jars with solar-powered lights inside were available at a cost of $8 each. Oh, my. That’s a little steep, considering I want several.
Also prominently stamped on the tag: Made in China.
No, thanks. Maybe I can convince my engineer husband to rig something up using mason jars I already own. Chuck, what do you think?
