Already planted your summer garden? And now the forecast calls for frost????
Have no fear! Try my last minute frost solution- its FREE!
First, lets go to the recycling bin or trash can. Grab as many milk jugs, juice/soda bottles or whatever else is in there. I used some plastic salad bins too!
Plug your nose (in the case of the milk jug!) and give it a rinse. Then cut it in half.
You now have TWO tiny greenhouses.
Now head out to the garden and lets cover those tomatoes and peppers.
Here’s a soda bottle tiny greenhouse.
And a milk jug.
Be sure to cover them early enough in the day to trap a few of the sun’s rays. It’ll heat up your tiny greenhouse and keep them frost-free until morning. This obviously won’t work for super-duper cold nights, but hopefully it’ll preserve the time and effort (and money!) you’ve already invested in your home garden.
