Don't be fooled by the rocks that i got, i'm still (i'm still) planting in my pots. That's right. Nothing a little j. lo wordplay can't fix.
This may be a no brainer-certainly this is not rocket science-but it IS one of those "why didn't i think of that" moments. Because, people, this WORKS! Consistently ALL summer, no more dirt on my front steps. I seriously stand behind this. The other idea for keeping squirrels away, that gets pinned a millllllion times, that didn't work for me. But this works. Pin THIS a million times. Because i wish i would have known about this sooner.
This also keeps my cat Lily out of my indoor plants. Yet another genius idea from the boyfriend, one that i didn't fully grasp right away. When he said i needed to add rocks to keep her from digging, i assumed he meant the ones from our travels.
So, i tucked in a few heart shaped ones from Aruba and France, added a little pottery shards from Israel, some shells from Hawaii...and expected it to work. Not so, my friends. For outdoor use and for consistency across the top of the pot, you're gonna need the little stones that come in bags from the dollar store or Ikea.
Go forth and rock on.
I refrained from using this one, but i can't get it out of my head now. "I like the way you work it...no diggity." Remember that song?
J.Lo ain't got nothin' on me.
