I use small plastic bottles they don't blow off so easily and the base is large enough so if your face does come into contact when you bend down its unlikely to cause any damage

i have grown butternuts for the first time this year and have five fruits, not brilliant but next year i will make sure they are pollinated I grew one plant in the greenhouse and used comfrey feed 

I have used a wormery i had given to make the food, just filled each layer with chopped up leaves and put a bottle under the open tap to collect the feed, no smell at all they just dissolved into a slimey mess and i kept adding more
