Early last September, when the smoke was so thick that it was inadvisable to go outdoors without a gas mask, the Master Gardeners got together on my patio to make plans for the spring plant sale. The air was slightly clearer at our elevation, and the patio, surrounded by tall evergreens, seemed to be filtering the air.

One of the projects on the agenda was an idea sparked by a piece in the magazine Garden Gate. The article gave directions for starting seeds in an empty milk jug, watering them and then burying the lower part in the garden. Next spring, when you dig up the jug, voila! There are your seedlings ready to transplant!
