My original thoughts for these two windows was to build a cold frame for outside. A cold frame is a box with glass on the surface that attracts light to warm and grow plants in through out the cold seasons.
#1 reason: It's way to flipping cold here. When it gets to -8 for the high during the day and -25 at night I sure as heck am not going to be going out to check if my plants are ok.
#2 reason: There is TOO much snow. I would have to go out and remove the snow from on top of the box everyday that it snows. (Again, too cold to WANT to do that)
Eventually I dream of having a house with a little more land so that I can have a small personal greenhouse of my own with cold frames outside of it. Plants are one of my passions and I would love to dabble in that hobby more on my own. I miss my greenhouse from when I taught high school Horticulture. It was the best of all worlds.
