Planting in Plastic Bottles

Planting in plastic bottles just makes sense.  Plastic bottles are space savers.  You can hang them and we even show you how to in the picture below:

You can plant flowers, vegetables such as lettuce, onions, radishes etc., like the ones in the below picture:

As you can see we are using pop/soda bottles and water bottles.  Instead of throwing them out why not grow something delicious inside of them?

You can even use milk jugs to garden in.  It's about imagination and creativity.  Run a wooden stick through the handles and hang the entire set-up somewhere and make a dull location become full of life and beauty.

Lettuce in a Bottle

Self explanatory:  Lettuce in a bottle.

We advocate recycling and using these materials to grow your own food. It is so simple to cut water bottles (that don't contain BPA) in them and reuse them for growing food. 

The above picture demonstrates how just how easy it is to grow something as simple as lettuce in container.  Just call it container gardening!

You can do this in limited spaces, even on balconies and apartments.  What do you think about this idea?  Are you already doing it or know of someone who is doing container gardening?

Don't be scared to get your hands dirty!

Homemade Mosquito Trap

Here is a easy and affordable mosquito trap that anyone can made at home!


1 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 gram of yeast (1/7th typical packet)
2-liter plastic bottle


1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)

Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control and of course empty out all of those dead mosquitos trapped at the bottom of the bottle.

Let us know how you're turned out!
