Readers’ New Gardening Uses for Old Things
2-Liter Plastic Bottle
Original purpose: Bottling your fizzy favorite.
Aha! use: A plant-warmer. Fill empty bottles—milk jugs and big juice bottles work, too—with hot water and place them around tomato and pepper plants to create a toasty barrier during low temps.
Reward: Giving your veggies a fighting chance against frost.
