Woo Hoo! Look What I Found on the Front Porch!

A huge shout out and gigantic THANK YOU GUYS! to 1st Man and 2nd Man from Two Men and a Little Farm.  A bit ago they had a wonderful giveaway for a Plant Nanny set, something I really needed to win.  It is an idiot proof self waterer using a terra cotta hollow spike (aka The Plant Nanny) and a wine bottle.  We have a glass of wine (or two) nearly every night with dinner, so finding an empty bottle was as easy as clearing the dinner table no problem.  I truly hate showing y'all this picture of this plant that lives by my front door.  I actually do water it regularly sometimes but not the two times a day it screams for, so the picture reflects the absurd heat and a tad  boatload of neglect.

 See how nicely the wine bottle fits into the cylinder.  Pay no attention to the wine drip on the label of the bottle. Btw, in addition to my new favorite watering device, the wine bottle is from my new favorite wine.  Now every time I put fresh water in I will be reminded to buy Black Stallion 2012

They come in a pack of 4, so I used one here and took the rest to the lake place this past weekend.  I have several pots of herbs on the deck that were screaming for a little drink and how nice will it be to have something that will keep them hydrated while we are not there.

Again, huge thanks to you two!  The rest of you head on over there and if you aren't already a daily reader, introduce yourself and tell them I sent you. And while you are there tell them they picked the perfect winner because no one else could have as many plants in need of salvage (and daily water) as I do.

Thanks again!

    1. I am going to buy some more of these for next summer. I have many potted plants in the back and I have been having to water 2 times a day just to keep them alive. Since I have not done a great job of watering twice daily all my herbs are pretty much dead.
