DIY-Milk jug ollas for the garden

I know its only February, but its never to late for knowledge. Keep your garden hydrated with this easy (and green!) tip: Take a clean 1 gallon milk jug, poke a small hole in the bottom with a nail, fill it with water, and recap it. Set this next to your thirsty plants and watch it grow. You can put some stones at the bottom to assist in keeping the jug in place when the wind comes. I have also experimented with burying the jug in the soil a bit. It does work and will save you from buying the expensive Ollas that others peddle.
Dont forget you can also pour the sour mil into your compost pile or directly on the ground around your zuchs and maters for extra calcium.. They will love you
