A really, really Frugal Gardener - Page 5 Empty Squeeze Bottle

Post  countrynaturals 7/24/2019, 12:15 pm

This is one of my all-time favorite threads -- had to revive it. reading

My favorite free garden aid is a squeeze bottle. Before Hubby was diagnosed with Type II diabetes, we used to get agave syrup in squeeze bottles and I had one by every outdoor spigot and every indoor faucet, but now they're getting scarce. Yesterday I used up a sugar-free syrup bottle -- YEE-HAH! I now have another "watering can".

I use these for:

watering seed trays
watering house plants
filling the bird water bowl on the balcony
filling the reservoir at the top of the hummingbird feeder to keep the ants out.
filling the cats' water bowls

One of my many gardening failures has been rooting cuttings, probably because I never have the right size containers.

We drink Crystal Light and it comes in the perfect tall, sturdy plastic tubes that let me take nice, long cuttings (2x3x6.5" high). They're translucent, so the sun can't get to the roots, but I can still see the water level from the side. They're perfect! I cluster them to keep them from drying out.

Here's lemon balm I'm rooting for Christmas presents. Later today, I'll knit them a cozy for added insulation and to make them prettier, since they'll be in my bedroom for several months.

Scrolling though the topics, I noted that each topic had the number of views after it.  One had over 14,000, several over 10,000  and I discovered this topic that had over 6,000 views and I found that I started this topic in 2014.

I did not read all 6,000 posts, but it really took me back all those years when I posted that I had found a water meter that only cost me one dollar.

I still found it a very interesting thread and it is fun to see what people did with their stuff.

Also so many poster's name that I remembered and no longer see on this wonderful site.

Did I really join here in 2011?
