  • great workshop! I've always coveted one of those gorgeous coldframes made from old windows, but alas, I have such a tiny yard that the only thing practical for me is the pop up coldframe that is used for a month and put back in the shed. I hope they discuss methods for people with limited space.

    I've wanted one of those coldframes too. Also, a greenhouse made of windows.
