Every muscle in my body hurts today. Portland experienced its first GLORIOUS and sunny weekend of the year, and I spent 98% of it in my backyard building a garden bed and planting veggies and flowers and cleaning up the aftermath of a lot of months of rain and neglect. The yard is looking fantastic, and the plants haven’t died yet! Hey, 3 days and still going strong- that might be a record for me!
I’ve already started thinking about how to make sure the garden is well taken care of while I’m in Paris next month (haven’t you heard?!), and happened up on this idea to use wine bottles as a watering system from Lettuce Share. It’s kind like those fancy watering globes I’ve seen in stores, except for free and without so much risk of shattering (I bought a few of those globes last year and not a single one stayed in one piece!). If you’re not the wine-drinking type, you could also use apple cider bottles, vinegar bottles or even glass soda bottles! Extra credit if you decide to fancy them up with adornments!
**Bonus tip: don’t buy expensive marbles from the craft store for this! Buy the bag of marbles from the dollar store!**
You can whip up several of these in just minutes!
