Growing Plants in Stackable Milk Crates

After my seeds are growing and in bigger containers, I place them in crates, against the patio doors and windows which are facing west. I am known to have at least 20 crates! The light and air can get through to all plants.


Once the weather warms up during the day, I place them on the porch facing east during the day, and bring them in at night, or cover them up with sheets. Using the crates, I can transport them to the garden easily.
