Created before The Hypertufa Gardener, I have a YouTube Channel called Kim's Gardens.

I have filmed a lot of making and creating hypertufa pots and planters, but there are also cooking and recipes and a few films of family too! Check those out too!

check out that shape - the hypertufa gardener

I have made quite a few videos on making hypertufa planters, bowls, hanging pots, etc.  I have many videos about my draped hypertufa planters there also, including the ones here on the posts.

I have also made some videos for the recipes and crafts and activities from my other posts, so feel free to explore and find something you like. I try to keep the videos fairly short so that you can watch them quickly since we are all on the run these days.

Here are a couple of  links . Click and be directed to the video. ( I was experimenting at getting really creative. Or maybe it was two glasses of wine that evening.)

You know I am frugal and that stays the same even when I am making photos for my blog. Granted, one day I may decide to upgrade to a bigger and better camera. But for now, this is what I use.

My phone camera

I have the Samsung-SM-G920V and I set it for the highest resolution  5312 x 2988 and video size 1920x1080.

You must always take your photos  and especially the videos with the phone held horizontally, not vertically. Trust me.

My other camera.

Samsung WB350F 16.3MP CMOS Smart WiFi & NFC Digital Camera with 21x Optical Zoom and 3.0" Touch Screen LCD and 1080p HD Video (White)

It is a Samsung WB350F and this works for photos and videos.

I recently got a tripod at a garage sale  $5 (after some complaints about how unsteady I was, and it did help a lot).

Software, the biggest expense

Sony Vegas Pro Suite [Download]

My son was so good to me and got this for me. He used it too for his channel on YouTube, so he was able to teach me too.  He is a gamer. It is a detailed program and has so much capability, more than I have discovered, I know. But I am learning day by day.

I also have dual monitors on my computer set up so that I can listen/read/make changes while looking at two screens instead of toggling between tabs. ( I confess that I do have many tabs open anyway...on both.)  I know my son had a different graphics card in my computer, but most have a dual port anyway if you would like to hook up two monitors.

Kim, The Hypertufa Gardener

Hi, I am Kim and thank you so much for visiting my magazine! I am a gardener and a hypertufa maker. If you came here to learn about hypertufa, I have a lot of information. But I also write about flower gardening and using succulents which are great drought-tolerant plants.

Of course, I have some recipes and some random family concerns which I hope interest you too! Please page through the Magazine and find what you like! and Subscribe!

I also have a YouTube channel called Kim’s Gardens where you can see my hypertufa as I make them. ( See My About Page)
