  •  I do bio-intensive organic gardening (0+ / 0-)

    and live in an area with a very short growing season.  I've used plastic bottles like that for about 10 years to get a jump start on spring planing.

    Had a kid once ask about them and I told him that was how they grew pop.  He was young enough to believe me for a year.

    I live in a straw bale house and have planted potatoes in straw housed in wire containers.  You can keep piling more straw on as the shoots emerge and get potatoes layered up through the whole thing.  Makes them very easy to harvest.
