DIY Window Greenhouse

7:20:00 AM

This morning I'm making a greenhouse 
from an old window...

I'm using reclaimed 4x4 posts found in my yard...
I measured and cut them into a square the size of the window.

A Master Carpenter I'm not, 
but since this is going into my garden, perfect is not my goal...

I'm holding the corners together with rusty L brackets...
and it worked great...

I leveled the soil and moved the frame into the garden...

I attached the window to the frame with old rusty hinges...

Using a stick I can prop the window open for planting...

I filled the box with soil and it's ready for planting!

I can't wait for this messy little garden to grow...
the plants and flowers will surround this 
beautiful little greenhouse window!

Looks like I have a lot of work to do on that path too!
Back to work!

Happy Spring!
