I also put my lettuce trays in the cooler to chill/pregerminate in the
summer.  I give them a day or two and take them out.

Just a hot weather tip for green growers, we use our old cooler that just
has an AC, to make a germination chamber for cool weather micro greens and
lettuce, take out of the dark chamber after germination and put in shaded
hoophouse for further growing, not everything works but most do.

on slabs. . . you HAVE to insulate the floor, preferably below the concrete.
We are running two A/C united tied into one cool bot (foil the thermostats
together) and maintain 39-42 degrees with a 12x13' cooler w/ crappy panels
and rigged up door.  Doing it from scratch I would buy a enclosed freezer
box (+R value) with floor (and good door) and save myself a lot of hassle
and electricity.
