Garden Progress

Garden Pad

What's that in the table planter?

Milk Jugs Stage

A healthy crop of milk jugs.


Inside Milk Jug

A tomato plant in each one. The milk jug trick may be common knowledge among gardeners, but I learned it from my mom...ages ago, long before I ever cared about sweating over plants in June humidity. She cut the bottoms out of gallon jugs and used them as mini greenhouses while the tomato plants were still small.

I transferred these plants just today, and there's the prediction of a storm tonight, so hopefully these will get a good drink without being battered.

I haven't lost any of my plants yet.

  1. What a cute little area! That planter's shelf is neat, too.
