Have only WS veggies once, and, I had GREAT success!

As long as you keep your jugs closed and located where they will get sunlight and rainwater (or get hit by the sprinklers), they will grow when they are ready to, which will ususally be sooner than later, due to the "greenhouse" effect of the vessel. I used gallon milk jugs secured from my local Starbucks. They gave them to me by the garbage bag full, for the asking.

The added benefit of WS veggies is that they will be much hardier and hardened off for transplanting.
