the genius milk jug protector

as promised

the genius milk jug protector

cut off the bottom of your (empty) milk jug.  (best to, ya know, drink it first.)  cut a section out of the top of the handle.  sterilize with 1:10 bleach & water solution.  secure over plant with stick.  voila!  a no-cost way to protect baby seedlings from strong wind and critters (namely squirrels 'round these parts).  i have heard it is not great for frost protection, but i can't speak from experience.

isn't it great reusing what is already on hand? (and we go through several gallons a week at casa hart.)
