Thriving Plants When You Live In The Botanical ‘Hole Of Death’

by Tammy Taylor~

I’ve said it before and I can’t say it enough.  I love it here!  I love living in the country and the small-town feel.  We’ve made good friends and feel a true sense of community here.  And there’s that old 1800’s Barn that just speaks to my heart!  My life here is perfect in all ways except one. I struggle to get plants, trees or shrubs to live in our yard!!  Apparently we built our home right in the middle of the Botanical Hole of Death.

Repurposed Coffee Canister To Cute Planter

Recently I was chatting with a friend about those little red plastic coffee containers.  I love them and use them often for storing various things when we’ve consumed all the coffee from them.  I use them to store short-term quantities of chicken feed, for my gardening things, as a compost container to collect items destined for the *compost tumbler, etc.  But after a while you’re run out of things to do with them.  I sadly told RancherMan to just go ahead and start putting them in the recycling bin, there was no other use I needed them for.  But in chatting with a friend she said she uses them for pots on her porch. Humm…. 

See how to easily repurpose those empty plastic coffee cans into cute planters, even suitable enough for porch decor! Quick. Easy. CUTE! #TaylorMadeHomestead
