I've also seen folks around here using milk crates as nesting boxes for chickens.
Around here we call them urban basketball hoops. The kids had one pinned up when we moved here. Curious to know: for hens, are the crates positioned on their sides?
The ones I saw were upright with a bunch of straw stuffed in them.
A few years ago, I thought about building a SIP with the crates soft drink delivery people use. They are similar but flatter and wider than milk crates. I thought that they would work well for seedlings at first then I thought that they could be an insert for a larger, custom built SIP. This is a great example of reusing common objects to grow food. Thanks for posting - hope all is well.
How good to hear from you, Russ. I like the soft drink crate concept too. Are you growing things in Minneapolis?
Not yet. Next spring for sure. We close on our house in three weeks and I've already plotted out the garden location in the yard. I'll keep you posted.
That sounds most hopeful. All the best, and of course let us know when you get your grow list together.
