Pee-Free Herbs

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!

  1. A grand idea, Julie, and I’m sure “Pee Wee,” “Pee Wee Wee,” and “Pee Wee Wee Wee,” also like their new terra cotta “fire hydrants.”

    They look great in the flower bed.
