The weekend before last I was walking around outside enjoying the break from the cold spell. I happened to walk by my garden where we temporarily put my flowers during the move and noticed that some of the spring flowers were starting to poke through the ground! This got me thinking about spring and garden preparation. So I guess it's time to start saving my milk jugs.
Milk jugs make great green houses for tomatoes and other touchy spring transplants. Just cut off the bottom and place it over your plant. It keeps moisture and heat in and wind burn off.
