    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.

    Any how..

    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!
