    Its a great way to recycle.....and for those that don't use bottles I bet your kids can find some at the neighbors house or those recycle bins! The colored bottles would keep it even 'greener'! Thanks for sharing this idea. (I use bottles sunken in my

    I work in a restaurant, we throw away tons of plastic one gallon mayonnaise jugs. I might have to leave all the lids on and drill 3 or 4 small holes. I bet this would be neat for strawberries. Like raised beds, only easier to put together. I'm gonna' try

    Interesting idea. I've seen single ones but none like this. Clever. We too are on a well and that is a great idea to save water. And I do believe that the condensation will help as well to water.

    If you are like me and don't have any plastic bottles this works well with 4" PVC pipe. Just cut the holes in the pipe with a drill or hack saw and plant that way.

    Can you tell us what you have done with the bottles. It is not obvious from looking at the pictures, at least not to me. I love the idea of hydroponic gardening and would try this if I could figure out what you did?

    follow the link and there is a step by step, No spoken words but the printed ones did the job and not listening while I was watching was very relaxing and refreshing.

    Jeanne, that I don't know, but I suppose that you could use PBA free bottles instead. It just might cost more.

    will the plants leach BPA from the plastic bottles?
