Re: Water Container Frost Protection

Good Morning,
You have a great idea. Whats even better, which I have been using for the past ten or more years, is the large 5 gal jugs.
My husband,using his table saw, cuts about one inch off the bottom, they usually stay intact. You can use those as saucers for other pots.
I live in North Central Arkansas, using the jugs, I have had cucumbers & tomatoes in early May. I am from South Louisiana, there you do not need much protection against the cold, my Grandparents did well with only milk jugs to cover their seedlings. I have accumulated about two dozen or more through the years from friends or finding them on the side of the highway. Also, they do get brittle when left exposed to the elements. I keep mine in a covered garage when not in use.
Have a great day,
