RE: what to do with the white milk jugs (Follow-Up #4)

I generally don't need them for WS but I keep them to use for my pauper's drip irrigation system:

> poke a pinhole an inch from the bottom opposite the handle
> set the jug at the base of the plant
> fill jug with the hose

Water pours out the pinhole slowly, hydrating the plant right at the base so no water is wasted on foliage or mulch. Once the level drops below the pinhole, remaining water holds the jug in place against the wind. Plant foliage hides the jug (mostly) from critical prying eyes.
