CSN Stores Review

This is what I ordered from CSN Stores........

Cuisinox 17.6" Mandoline with Blades

The functional design and modern appearance of this mandoline makes it a must-have. It's sturdy design adapts to any surface with non-skid supports. A hand guard as well as 5 blades in their protective plastic case are included.


• Mandoline

• Hand guard included

• Five blades with case included


• Material: 18 / 10 stainless steel

• Cleaning and care: Dishwasher safe

• Overall dimensions: 17.6" W x 5" D

I found this to be an excellent product. Great Quality! No doubt it will be in use for many hours during this year’s harvest.

I got my order today!!! The product came packaged well and it arrived in a timely manner. It shipped within 48 hours! My experience with CSN Stores.com was exceptional. Browsing the website was easy and informative. Checkout was a breeze!

My experience with the CSNStores.com was a great!

My SFG on 21 June 2010



I made some fresh Pesto with Basil from the Garden the other day.
It was Yummy!



Something was eating the leaves of the Peppers.
I mixed some water and crushed red pepper flakes
and sprayed the leaves.
That seems to have helped.

Green Beans

Whatever was eating the Peppers was eating the Green Bean leaves too.
I had replant some seeds
because some the the seedlings were too far gone.





Head Lettuce and Leaf Lettuce

Compost Pile

Blackberry Bush

Landscaping Project at 1 Year
