I was thinking the other day (actually the IT guy at school was thinking the other day) about vegetables. Vegetables grow in a variety of shapes and sizes. Round, oblong, curly, long and thin, whatever. But this must be a pain for shipping purposes, right? Imagine trying to ship 200 potatoes without the potatoes being hurt. Not possible, they're all different shapes, their size varies, etc. So imagine if vegetables were grown in little square boxes? It's a fact that vegetables grow wherever they can, and if they can only grow in a little box that's where they'll grow. The boxes would be put on after the vegetables (or fruit, I suppose) had begun to grow. The boxes could be, say, clear plastic, to allow sunlight in. The boxes could also have very minute perforations to allow oxygen exchange. And then, when you wanted to ship your 200 potatoes, you simply put the potato cubes into little pre-cut foam pads, and place those in crates. And the potatoes are fine.
