Name: Critter (Jill)
I've been known to double-plant when I run out of new jugs... I try to do it in a way that lets me know which one I have if something spouts... for example, I have a couple of jugs where I sowed columbines last year & they didn't come up... columbines have distinctive foliage, so if I sow another kind of seed in that old jug this year, I'll be able to tell what I have if one or the other (or both!) sprouts.

I've sowed quite a few 1 liter bottles (I have a thing for berry seltzer and diet lime tonic water) this winter, too. I think they'll work great for plants where I only have a few seeds or where I know I just want to have 1 plant to set out. I usually sow gallon jugs pretty full (probably too full) and then plant out or pot up a bunch of HOS (hunks of seedlings).
