For those of you wintersowing in one gallon milk or water jugs, do you worry about BPA leaching into your seedlings (veggies that is)? My wife is really concerned about this...

In soil, BPA reportedly has a half life of 1-10 days.

"From the results of this study, it was concluded that if BPA reaches the soil compartment, it is not expected to be stable, mobile, or bioavailable."
