Removing tree stumps by TwoPlusCute

We removed a stump. It was way less work than we expected and now we can mow that area easily. (This is a dreadfully written intro. I give it an F.)

Aaanyway, I bought Epsom salt to try the pinterest tip for removing tree stumps. Allegedly you drill holes, add watered Epsom to the holes and wait for a quick-ish natural decay. Well, we didn’t even have to add the salt!

Stump removal

After painstakingly drilling holes and getting the Epsom solution ready,
we realized the stump was moving.
And wouldn’t you know?

Some previous owner had decided to plant a…log in the middle of the yard.

Which makes total sense.

Makes sense

Gardening tip of the day:

Are you a brownthumber? 

Does caring for plants take too much of your time?

Having trouble keeping plants alive?

Are you by any chance afraid of plants? (I know I am.)

Worry no more dear reader because, there IS a solution for you:

Plant a LOG!”

Problem solved. It is so simple, I bet you went “duhh” when you read it.

    As garden features go that’s pretty, er, unique. At least they could be sure the neighbours weren’t going to have one the same! 😉 Thanks so much for linking up with #FridayFrivolity.

    I would almost think they did it to put something on top of it, but then it should have been cemented in for stability and there would be more of them. So, yeah, I am going with that’s loony! Thanks for sharing on #FridayFrivolity

      Haha, I’d say “good luck” but with this planting, you won’t need it. 😀

      Oh so true but, rest assured they have left several rooted tree stumps in the yard.
      All in good spirit I am sure – we don’t want to get bored with our yard. =]

    Hahaha so funny!! I hadn’t heard of the Epsom Salt treatment, but I would have loved to have seen faces when you realized the stump was planted. 😉

    Oh my gosh, that is awesome! What on earth?! Sometimes you have have to scratch your head and not think too hard about what someone else was thinking had to be a great idea! Well, at least you didn’t have to fight too hard to get it out of there!

    Hahaaa! Yes to most of your questions, except when it comes to “hard-to-kill” indoor plants! I can manage those, most of the time. 🙂

      I have a single indoor plant (for now) and every day that I look at it, I am amazed because it is still alive. I have no idea how it survives but it surely isn’t due to my efforts. 😀
