My second child has a horrible habit of digging in all my damn plants 🤦🏻♀️ I have tried everything with trying to modify her behavior but she’s 2 so that was a fail. Soooo I moved most of my plants out of her reach and then had a stroke of pure genius in this homemade soil cover 😜👇🏼
What You Will Need
Single hole puncher
Plastic disposable plates. Don’t use paper/cardboard they will rot & grow mold from the moisture in the soil
Either tape, zip ties, or string to fasten plate to planter. Basically whatever works with the specific planter you’re using
Using a cutting board to protect your surfaces, slice the plate in a straight line from the center to the outer edge.
Create a wide enough opening in the center of the plate with the hole puncher so the stem of your plant can sit comfortably in the middle without touching the sides.
Slide opening of plate around stem of plant so the plate sits on top of soil.
Fasten to sides of planter.
Tada! You made a soil cover to keep your gremlins out of your plants 🎉
I’m Kris 🙋🏻♀️ I’m a boho hippie beach mom just trying to raise a family in New England. I have a perfect 3 year old lil boy with autism, a beautiful high maintenance diva baby girl, & 2 crazy rescue dogs and we live on a lake in the woods on the seacoast of New Hampshire just outside Boston.
I’m super Italian & pretty much check off every Boston Italian stereotype and lemme tell ya we are definitely our own lil cultural world 😋
I have a bachelor’s degree in psych that I don’t use at all lol and I used to be a medical/surgical assistant and worked in both orthopedic trauma as well as pediatrics. I f**kin LOVED my job & if the apocalypse ever hits I have the medical knowledge to survive 🤪
I gained & subsequently lost 100 pounds post thyroid surgery, 60 pounds with baby # 1, and 30 pounds with baby # 2. I have been every body size there is and they are all beautiful!
I don’t wear a lot of makeup, I don’t know how to curl my hair, I’m obsessed with yoga & plants, I hate big cities, I mostly rock t-shirts & flip flops, I have a mouth like a sailor, I’m fluent in sarcasm, I’m loud & full of opinions, and I drink a lot of wine 😋 Some people say I’m a lot... but would you wanna live life only being a little??
I’ve walked a lot of paths in life and have been through some serious shit. So I will never judge you for where you are on your path or how you’re walking it. You do you boys & girls (and everyone in between)! Let yo freak flag fly! All are welcome & supported in my corner of the Internet 😉
