The following is a technique relating to Wintersowing.
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, Wintersowing is a method of starting seeds for your garden.
You simply sow your seed in easily prepared, "found", recycled containers and set them out in the yard in the dead of winter.
This post deals with the issue of keeping your containers securly closed so you can move them around and water them.
This post assumes you are familier with the concept and know how to initially prepare the milk jugs.
What I will focus on here is a specific trick I came up with to secure them.
Step 1: Materials-Part 1
-Yarn or string (I prefer yarn as it is stretchy)
Cut a length of yarn sufficient to wrap fully around the milk jug.
Make a large loop (roughly 6") in one end.
Divide this looped section in half and tie another knot making a figure "8"
Step 2: Materials-Part 2
-Some slats from a vinyl miniblind
Cut up the slats into about 2.5" lengths.
Cut some of these pieces in half.
