Simple Homemade Water Mister for Seedlings

Have you ever squeezed a spray bottle until your wrists ache?  With our new greenhouse and plans for an even larger harvest, Jon came up with this clever way of watering the seedlings without completely washing away the seeds and dirt.  Repurposing a water bottle from Jon's work, we simply drilled 12 holes using a 1/16 inch drill bit near the opening of the water bottle. Shaking or squeezing the bottle makes for easy watering without all the wrist pain.  There are automatic misters on the market, but with our recent chemical spill making our city water undrinkable, we came up with a clever way of watering the seeds using our well water.

Oh wow! I love this idea, and it's so simple. Also a good re-use of a disposable bottle.
