    An interesting idea to grow some fresh greens for the girls this winter. I don't think I'd do it with doors -- but we do have some old windows... Straw Bale & Glass Cold Frame - To keep growing in winter weather, consider this low cost clever idea. Insulate your garden with straw or hay bales & cover with glass (in this case old sliding doors) to retain heat. Some ventilation during warmer days would be necessary. Also a pest + animal deterrent.
