Turn Plastic Chicken Containers into Indoor Greenhouses

Turn Plastic Chicken Containers into Indoor Greenhouses

Much of the country has been (or still is) buried in snow and frozen temperatures for the last several months. But spring is knocking at the door, and you know what that means, right? It's almost time for gardening. Starting seeds indoors can be a great way to get a head start, and it's extra easy with the help of a plastic chicken container.

Although I'd like to tell you that I cook up every chicken from scratch in my kitchen, that just isn't true. The $5 grocery store chicken is a great way to make a quick meal, but those giant plastic packages can surely be reused somehow, right?

Although I thought I was doing good to simply get my plastic trash into the recycling, Carri Stokes at Read Between the Limes has encouraged me to put them to a second use.

Since seeds need a little extra humidity and heat during those late winter and early spring months for germination, these plastic chicken containers are the perfect item to get things started. Just pick up a little seed starting soil from your local hardware or garden store and you're all set. It allows you to move them around if needed, and you know that lid stays on tight!
