    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

    When you're planning a vacation, it's always difficult to figure out what to do with your plants while you're away, especially if it's a short trip. To keep your plants from drying out, DIY blog Secret Tips of The Yumiverse suggests you make a small greenhouse out of a plastic bag.

    The premise here is that my enclosing the plant, it will work similar to a greenhouse and keep the moisture inside. You'll need to make some poles first, they suggest using bamboo, to ensure the bag doesn't touch the plant, then you'll seal the whole thing together with a rubber band at the base. Check out Secret Tips of the Yumiverse below for a few other ideas, including using diapers as sidewall sealant and a guide for your own watering system.
