If you’re anything like me, when you empty a jug of milk, you hesitate to throw it right in the trash. They take up a lot of room, and that jug might be useful for something else, right? But in the end, I always usually end up throwing them out. Well, instead of just tossing them, here are 5 creative ways to use those milk jugs in your garden.
1. DIY Cloche
What? Yeah, a cloche is a great way to protect young plants. Cut the bottom of your jugs off, then stick them in the ground around your small plants (peppers, tomatoes, bush beans, etc). They’ll get oxygen and moisture, but be protected from cooler temperatures.
