What a grand idea! Will start collecting these now. Thankfully my oldest daughter with 3 kids goes through milk fast. I will get them off her. She just called all upset because her two peach trees were robbed blind sometime last night or this morning. She thinks the squirrels did it because they were acting nuts all day yesterday running along the fence near the trees.View attachment 10701
When you plant out of the greenhouse try this. I buy distilled water for my husband's cpap machine regularly. I cut the bottom out of those jugs and save sticks from my fruit tree prunings as stakes. Leave the top off to vent heat. Plant your little plant and stake this over it and leave it for a week or two. Protects from frosts, rabbits, some bugs, wind and hail and makes a little tiny greenhouse environment over your plant. Because it is opaque it also gives a little protection from the bright sun. You will see a huge difference between this plant and the one without the jug. Works to keep seeds warm and will help them come up faster because it warms the soil under it when the sun shines. When I finish with them then my husband strings them back up and suspends them from the rafter of the shed for next year. Makes a huge difference. Just a little trick. Hope it helps.
