    I thought it would be fun to see or hear about ideas people have had for helping their 'alaska gardens' reach their full potential...

    We use milk jugs with the bottoms cut off and lids removed to make 'mini greenhouses' for our starts..My boyfriend has been using them for several years, but I am not sure where he got the idea...It is a great one, and thanks to the 'inventor'!

    I am attaching pictures of the broccoli I planted 12 days ago from one inch starts...I planted nine with milk jugs for their greenhouses and one I left without a milk jug.

    I will have to put two posts to show the results so far, so bear with me

      I've cut the bottoms out only on 3 sides. fold the bottom out & put a rock on it.
      Used early season for frost warning covers.

      I cut top & bottom out for celery

      Use inverted tires for raised beds.

        love the moose nugget idea! And leaving the fourth side uncut on the milk jug in order to fold out is a great idea! I though this morning about cutting an X in the bottom of the milk jug and following a similar procedure
