homemade drip irrigation
Hi, I am saving 2 liter plastic bottles to use as slow drip irrigation for my tomatoes and peppers. I am planning on putting a very small hole, possibly pin size in the neck of the bottle. Then cutting off the bottom of the bottle and putting pantyhose over the top with a rubber band around it to hold it securely to the bottle. Then bury the bottle halfway into the soil with the bottom of the bottle sticking up out of the ground. The point to all of this would be to give each plant water slowly while making it easy to fill up with a hose and the pantyhose to keep mosquitoes from making the bottles their home. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Is this a completely stupid idea?
