I use the cheap kitchen scissors and sometimes a serrated steak knife for
cutting milk cartons; I use them on juice containers too.
For the thicker plastics like the juice containers, I make the drain holes and the
"vents" with a soldering iron.
I have put out about 50 containers, most of them in the last three days. We are
due daytime highs of 50s, 60s, and one low 70s. Night time temps range from
the 50s to freezing; they are mainly in the mid to upper thirties.
Do my jugs have a chance? I am going to do some backup with germinating seeds of those plants which are already up in my yard. If I
plant the seeds immediately upon germination, I feel that they might grow?
Please think and tell me: Hollyhocks, shastas, lupin, delphinium, poppies
foxgloves are all up and doing fine. Don't you think planted JUST germinated seeds would take too??
The hardest part of WS is leaving them alone. I'm still putting out jugs here in zone 5, the nights are still very cold. Some have sprouted but will be fine as long as I leave them alone for awhile yet.
