I love to garden it is relaxing and makes me feel good that I can grow food for my family (and flowers for myself). The flip side is I kill every plant I bring inside my house. Seriously my house is a DEAD ZONE, I have killed so many house plants and I have no idea why but I have always been like this. I did recently (this winter) discover Plant Genie (Dollar Store purchase)which waters your plants for you. Low and behold I didn’t kill my plants this winter – how cool is that?
So I was thinking what could I use to imitate the Plant Genie? BEER BOTTLES! I have been saving them because I am going to line my garden with them (I read somewhere it will help with the slugs) and I thought it would look cool to have a garden bed full of various bottles.
Why yes that is a Sam Adams Nobel Pils bottle Jeff says the plant has good taste in beer The other round glass thing it The Plant Genie.
So far, none of the plants have died and there is still water in the bottle (half full) and it has been 3 days. If it does work – Hello PLAID Enamel Paints and some “Vintage” looking plant paintings .
We also started our seeds this week:
Setup getting ready to fill with soil.
Added water to get the soil ready to plant seeds – Tray Fail. I was unaware the tray was cracked.
The mess under the table from tray fail.
Metal Tape to the rescue! It is not just for duct work and crafts anymore
My helper planting tomato, corn, cauliflower and cucumber seeds. Hoping to get outside and work on the beds today and plant some pea seeds
