As we were getting ready to go on vacation a few weeks ago, I began to worry about my outdoor plants. Keep reading to learn how I kept them alive while I was gone for over a week!
My plant survival kit consisted of a small plastic swimming pool purchased at Wal-Mart for $5.00 and water. Our Saturday to Saturday vacation meant certain death for my plants without my ingenious plan. : )
My plants did great while we were gone! The only negative was that the water smelled terrible but I quickly dumped it out to water the grass. Even my vintage ice cream freezer did well in the swimming pool! Pin this idea to have for your next vacation or a time when you know you will be super busy. If your climate is anything like Nashville, you can only go a couple of days before watering your outdoor plants before they wither.
