(insert “Psycho” movie violin screech sound here)
You know me well enough to know…I love logs, stumps, wood.
This was fairly easy.
Okay…I can’t lie.
It was a pain in the booty.
Do I still think you should try it?
Just use a very old, rotted stump.
Ours sat out in the elements (blizzards, rain, and even a tornado) for years.
Probably about 4 years to be exact.
The idea here, is to find a stump, or a big log that is soft in the center.
My hubby started this one out for me with a chisel and a hammer, and then I finished it.
I suppose a screw driver would work too.
It takes a little bit of strength and patience.
Chisel sideways, then down, then repeat.
Eventually, chunks come out.
You end up with a hole that is large enough to fit your soil and flower of choice.
You can also drill drain holes, but I didn’t.
It’s doing fabulous out there weeks later.
After a couple seasons this will rot the entire stump and we will burn it.
Until then…I love it.
Here’s more stump and log ideas for you…
One more thing before I get my house cleaned up so we can dirty it again…
