More uses for crates

Here is a with and without photo of 2 plants in regards to using crates. Same plant, about same size. Initially, I used crates to cover and protect the plants, that I just transplanted, from Frost we were due to get ( Using crates over plants with plastic over that. Garbage bags work, as well. Just stretch over… That also makes for great green houses, or earlier planting for warm lovers CHECK OUT GREEN HOUSE CRATE IDEA HERE ). After frost, I took plastic off, but figured I’d keep crates on to keep birds and other pests away from ruining them before they were established. As they were JUST PLANTED a day or two earlier. Yesterday, we had just gotten a flooding amount of rain here. Hard pouring. I forgot to cover one tomato… You can see the difference.
Also, I noticed some plants starting to wilt from the sun. But, the ones that were covered had a little extra shade and were shooting straight up. Once covered, they spruced right back up. Note: I never broke them in… They went straight from my home and into the ground! No weening.
Crates:
-Great Green Houses
-Great for Earlier Inground Planting for Warm Loving Plants (Melons, peppers, etc)
-Helps Provide a Little Shade
-Takes the Edge Off Hard Rain Falls
-Makes for Great Planters, especially my herbs!
