There are two ways to use an old milk jug. It makes a great mini greenhouse or a scoop for fertilizer. When the forecast calls for unusually low temperatures, cut the bottom of the milk jug, and place it over the plant to protect from potential damage. Turn a jug into a scoop by making two horizontal cuts on the sides, adjacent to the handle and you have a sturdy scoop for seeds or fertilizer.

Is it about time to toss your old cake pan? Well, don’t throw it away just yet, as this is the perfect tool for moving potting soil. Rather than lugging around a huge bag, fill the pan with soil and shake it as you work your way through the garden.
