Yes, it does look neat.  I like the way the seed packet can be located with the seed bed.

I didn't notice that Embarassed

I know a lot of folks here like to recycle/upcycle so...

I am guessing you could also do something to use them as self watering tubs for seed starts. maybe invert some cups and put a couple of square pots in there or the 6 packs that transplants come in.

I like it better than the clear 2-liter bottles cut open on their sides. The bottles allow solarization of the soil which would fry anything in my region. The bottles are good for cloches.

I used to work for Maola milk and we had a few fishermen that would buy empty 1/2 gallon cartons to store their fish in the freezer. They would put the fish in, add some water and seal the top. then they could easily stack them

Trout out here. We would catch them in the high mountains, clean and salt to pack them back out on horseback/mule. Then rinse and freeze in filled milk cartons. What a good memory. Thanks.
