A good idea to use a small pond/stock tank to store rain water and mitigate temps in cold weather (water as a heat sink) and have water without chlorine in it to water plants. I have been known to use my solar addition (defacto green house/cold frame) to dry clothes - it is easier on the clothes and adds humidity at the same time.

Currently I am holding over some Golden Berry plants I stared from seed last summer (late) for next summer. I picked my first one a could days ago - small but tasty. You have to pollinate by hand in the greenhouse.

I like the idea of a funky greenhouse made from old and reclaimed materials.
