We live in Wilmington, NC. Instead of buying canned soda/pop we buy
the 2 liter bottles. We can get these at 77cents/2liter (pepsi & coke
products) by price matching at walmart.
Its warm here, year round, with a few cold nights. I heard you can
have a winter garden here and decided to do so.
The problem is we dont have a hose in the back yard and watering
becomes a neusance depending on our plans for the day.
I took the 2-liter bottles, filled them with water, turned them over
next to the cantaloupe plant and twisted it into the ground next to
it. The bottles have only been there for about 20 minutes, and there
are four of them. two cantaloupe, a winter flower, and a pretty nice
sized pumpkin vine.
Has anyone heard of anything like this? Will the water absorb into the
ground and water the roots? Does there need to be a hole in the bottom
(the end sticking into the air) of the bottles?
Is there a better way
of watering these plants?
I also heard there was some ways you can hand fertilize pumpkins and
such.. true or not? and how?
THANKS in advance!
Brandon, Nicole & PreBaby!
