Mini Greenhouse from Old Floppy Disk Storage Cases

You remember floppy disks (if not, ask your parents). Everyone had them and saved copies of backup disks in these boxes . Well, it's time to give them a new life as mini greenhouses.

Thats a great idea! why couldn't you plant directly in the case? I think it'd be great for winter sowing. The clear top is perfect. I wonder if I still have mine. . . . .

If you are going to use it for winter sowing you would have to drill holes in the top for the water to get in.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
