    Default Moving plants to a new window for summer

    So, it's Spring and approaching Summer quickly. We all know this means our South facing windows become worthless as the sun gets too high up to shine much direct light through a Southern window (at least in my neck of the woods). My question is, would it be worth my time to move the 'chids to an Eastern window for the summer (which gets much more light this time of year)? What do you guys do about this situation?

    Sounds like a reasonable thing to do. I don't have southern exposure, just east and west.
