Storage Box Greenhouse

Game show host Alex Trebek was born on this day, and on Jeopardy, he gives contestants answers for which they must come up with the question. So, in the spirit of Jeopardy?it's something made from a plastic storage box (such as those by Sterlite or Rubbermaid) that, after turning over the lid and laying it upside down, you load with young seedlings for vegetables and flowers or herbs and spices to be grown indoors. It is then covered with the large opaque plastic bottom, which is also placed upside-down. The plastic bottom has air holes drilled at the top and drain holes in the bottom (which is actually the lid.) With us so far? The answer is a nifty mini-greenhouse made from a large upside down plastic storage box that's tough, fully waterproof, filters sunlight, and is easy to open, replenish, and to clean?all for just a few dollars. Ding, we have a winner!
