Carry them out with your picnic food – then sit down off the ground, if lawn is not dry.” Tomoko Azumi
For a picnic – you can put food, drink and glasses in the container, for taking them outdoors. You may use them as stools if the ground is wet, or if you sit on dry grass, you can use them as little tables.
For gardening – you may carry your tools to where you work, then you upturn it to use as a stool and sit off the ground, in a better position for your knees. Harvest fruits and vegetables and take them from the garden, too.
