It will be garden time soon. So, these are mostly garden ideas.
As you collect seeds, put them into jugs that you have cut with a hole in the side, or have cut the top off. You can carry the seeds to the garden in these when planting time comes. You could also sort your seeds by planting times, i.e., plant right after the last frost, plant in cold frame, start indoors, don't plant until late spring, keep for fall planting, etc.
Thanks for those reminders I'd forgotten! We have a few blocks of folks who ALWAYS save their milk jugs for placing over the larger bulbed stringed lights at Christmas time for "softening the glow", I understand.
I like the idea of perhaps making a wall of water filled milk jugs surrounding a new plant in the winter to offer a weighted buffer zone of warmth for both the ground and as the water melts through freezes, to drip evenly and support it's growth, even plants
that have been covered by an empty inverted jug!
Wow, a BIOSPHERE, almost. What a good
idea. The sun heats the outer jugs, while they both
protect and water the inner jug that covers!
Actually, the three liter cola bottles of water inverted around a milk jug covered plant should also work?
Then, when temps really fall, I could use the framework they form to hold a med. plastic garbage sack around the whole set up? Might consider this for the Brussel Sprout plants I hope will continue to grow that I was sold by an unscrupulous garden center IN THE TEXAS SUMMER HEAT. I placed them in the shade and actually have them about a foot high
so far with great leaves, looking forward to cooler temps and garden space.
