Vegetable Gardening Tip

Recently, I was starting to plant a couple of dwarf Alberta Spruce trees when my neighbor's brother asked if he could have the plastic containers when I was finished. I willingly obliged and he explained that he cuts the bottoms of the containers out and uses them in his vegetable garden. He stated tomatoes, peppers, or other vegetables, are planted in these type of containers in the ground. He claims it helps to ward off pests, and as he is a long time gardener, I'm sure he knows what he is talking about. Thought I would pass this tip along as some people have struggled with pests in their vegetable gardens. Plastic coffee containers would be another resource. This is also a great way to recycle.
