It’s about to get super hot here (April and May are often over 100) and I am putting in my little tomato plants. I heard about different methods to keep the roots of the plants moist without wasting water, which is scarce this time of year, so I thought I would try a few without additional purchases. Milk comes in plastic containers and I have been hoarding the empty jugs for different uses so I took some, made slits down one side and placed them next to each plant. My intention is to fill them with water to get a nice flow directly to the roots. Since I am also not excited about plastic in the garden, I am trying a glass bottle as it seems to be draining slower and that could be good. Let’s see what happens!
