The fruit ‘n’ vegie box

I saw something similar to this somewhere on the web a while ago and thought I would give it a whirl.  Not sure that I built it to the same spec, but this will do us just fine.

You need:

  • One old esky
  • Shade cloth
  • Fly wire
  • Cloth tape
  • Screws & washers
  • A patient husband

Drill holes in a tidy pattern in all walls of the esky.  File off any sharp edges.

Line with flywire cut to size (and trimmed with white cloth tape)

Cover with shade cloth panels cut to size (and trimmed with blue cloth tape)

Ta da!  An insulated box that will allow our fruit and veg to stay fresh, breathe, and not allow flies or ants inside (or mice!)

What do you think about that?
