      This definitely gives me ideas! I hadn't really thought about doing a small greenhouse, like the "mini" ones. You could grow anything anywhere if you have a greenhouse maybe, right? Like, if you're in the wrong hardiness zone for a flower or fruit, could you put it in a greenhouse for better results?
