Great idea! I have to admit that I haven't even gotten plants in the ground, but when I do I shall give this fabulous recycling idea a whirl. Thanks for joining us this Thrifty Green Thursday!

That is a good idea! I want to do more to extend our growing season if possible.

What a great idea! My husband always gets all excited about planting too early and then everything dies when it gets cold for a day or two.
