Wood-stove humidifier

Wood stove humidifierLack of humidity is not something our farm usually suffers from. But last week's cold spell was notable in the extremely low water content of the air, which led to all kinds of minor discomforts in my nose and lips.

Luckily, Mark can fix just about anything. He was less than impressed with the pots I pulled out of kitchen circulation to fill with water and place atop the wood stove, so he instead went out and tracked down an old tea kettle. The vessel had been used as part of a deer deterrent, but with our deer situation much more under control lately, we felt comfortable repurposing the kettle as a wood-stove humidifier.

I wonder what this repurposed kettle will turn into next. Heck, maybe we'll even use it to make tea!
