Winter Sowing With a Bandsaw

In the comments section to my Christmas Eve post, Medo asked how I made my containers for wintersowing. Here's a 36 second clip of how I do it. Be sure to turn your volume down. It's not a quiet activity.



If you have access to a bandsaw or a friend with a woodworking shop, you can make almost 200 containers from 2-liter bottles in just a couple of hours. Be sure to rinse the bottles out first or else you'll find that sawdust and dried cola don't mix well.

Ready to be filled:

I saw your post on garden web--wintersowing. I LOVE this! Its sooooo much better than my old method using a box cutter. THANK YOU! Also maybe it will get Hubby interested since it involves a power tool. ;)
