HOW many times have you seen that phrase posted?? Get your JUG and be ready! No more thinking... MAKE a plan! Bomb yourself on a DAILY basis with a constant REMINDER of where you need to be at! Best part is you can DIY with a empty milk jug and permanent marker! Did I mention you can put your OWN little motivational touches on it! 1 gallon = 128 ounces
Gotta try this: Once you've planted your seeds, close the jug & tape it shut. On each jug, write what you've planted in it & the date you planted the seeds. Now, here's the best part: once you've done this, you keep the mini greenhouses outside & leave them alone. No need to bother with artificial lighting & seed trays inside -- you simply leave the milk jug greenhouses outside where they get natural sunlight & the needed moisture from rain and snow through the opening at the top of the jug
