I brainstormed today and formulted two newfangled inventions for the CPs! And they're both from a steel clotheshanger!
First one: I butchered a clothes hanger with wirecutters (oooooo.. big deadly tools.... *eyes brighten*) and bent the top half of one straight metal peice into a circle, coming around 360 degrees and meeting the beginning point, making a six-inch or so circle. Since it was metal, and would rust, I wrapped it airtight in black tape, then went out and stuck it in the dirt of my Judith Hindle's pot, the hoop about eight inches off the ground and encircling the pitchers, giving it some support! WOOWOO!!!
Second one: I butchered ANOTHER clothes hanger and took two four-inch peices and bent the ends into hook-like bends. Then I burnt holes on either side and bottom and outer edges of the bottom of a clean Mott's Applesauce container. I took the peices and hooked one end through each of the holes, one peice on each side. Then I went out to the greenhouse and hung the thing with the other ends of the peices onto the underside of the top shelf, suspending it several inches above my Darlingtonia. Now for the explanation of this contraption: Since the darlings like cool water from above them throughout the day, I'll put a distilled-water-ice cube or two in the suspended applesause container and the cube will gradually melt and the cool water will drip through the hole in the bottom of the suspended container directly onto the darling's soil! WOOWOO!!!
Life just got SO much easier.
I feel so pround of myself!
