Isn’t it exciting to discover something cool that you didn’t even know you had? Well, that’s exactly what happened to me last weekend. I found these terra cotta drainage tiles in the shed. They were left behind by the previous owners. Score! When I saw them, my eyes lit up and my brain started humming. I immediately knew how I was going to repurpose them – herb planters!
I enjoy cooking and like to use fresh herbs – rosemary and basil, in particular. I also happen to have three male dogs. You know where this is going, don’t you? Sorry, but I don’t want my sweet little pups watering something I intend to eat. I’m sure my future dinner guests agree. The height of these drainage tiles makes them the perfect solution to pee-free herbs! Even IF my dogs decide to do the Fire Hydrant Shuffle until the “wee” hours of the morning, their fancy dancing won’t affect the herbs. (They are Shih-Tzu’s and would need a ladder.)
Not only are my herbs safe from the dogs, but they are conveniently located in a flower bed just a few feet outside the front door. Can’t wait to see those little herb seeds sprout!
