You also get to choose what is in the window boxes. If you are a gardener and love home plants, then each box can extend your garden. But if you are thinking long-term home decoration, you might consider non-plant alternatives. Decorative stones, garden pinwheels, or solar lights might all be great options for your window boxes.
Review Flag Mount And Solar Light From Lowes
This flagpole mount will work, the solar flagpole light is great. We had to do some minor repairs to our flagpole mount, no better time to do a review for all you patriotic viewers out there. We got the flagpole mount at Lowes for just $10, seem like a great deal if it would hold up for more than a few months. It may just be Florida and the high winds we see here, but I this if I was going to do this again, I would have just got the Amazon flagpole mount below, for about the same price. The teeth on the Amazon mount would bite more as you tighten it. When Danielle and I were doing this, it was an impulse. If I was going to do this again I may have source everything on Amazon versus Lowes and saved money.
How to Install a Solar Light on a
How to Install a Solar Light on a Little Free Library You might not suspect it, but your book-sharing box probably gets late-night visitors. It's more common than you think. But keeping your Little Free Library lit up for those night-owl browsers can be a challenge. Solar lights to the rescue. Adding a solar light is a long-term, eco-friendly lighting solution, and it's exactly what stewards Kim and Bill Anderson did with their Little Free Library #34801 in Waterloo, Ontario. They put together some quick instructions to show exactly how they did it. Now you can learn how to add solar lights to your book-sharing box, too. Start by purchasing a solar light, available at most hardware or home improvement stores. Remove the post beneath the light, which you may be able to just pull off. You want the solar light to slide in and fit snugly in the hole. Kim and Bill recommend drilling the hole close to the roof of your Library and near the front, to allow space for the solar light inside. Add a ring of silicone glue to the solar light tube and insert the solar light into the hole, so that the light is glued in place. Make sure that the battery-end of the light is sticking out of the Library, so that you an swap out the battery if it fails. This is what the solar light will look like from the outside, once you are all done. Your Library will now light up at night, thanks to your handy solar light. These instructions were originally posted on the Little Libraries KW Facebook page. For more craft ideas, free downloads, and how-tos, visit the Just for Stewards page.

It's a good concept, the problem is that the light from the solar lights you are talking about is very . weak I guess. I have a few around my place where it was not feasible to run a hardwired light and they are just barely enough to see where I am walking. It's not going to be enough to make the plants think they are in the sunlight 24 hours. You would need a much stronger lighting system
Is there a way to calculate solar light intensity by temperature measurement?
I envision a small, flat, black plate in a vacuum, aimed at the sun. There would be a temperature sensor behind the plate to record the temperature. A second, identical temperature sensor would be nearby, but shaded from the sun. With the second sensor, you could compensate for differences in absolute temperature (i.e., is the air hot or cold?). In space, the second sensor would not be needed.
Solar Light Installation guidelines
You can easily install LED 212 solar lights at home. Just take out the light from the box and use attached 2 screws and anchors to install. Do not try to setup the mode during day time as the light wo not response during day time. Go back to the light after dusk to setup your desire mode. Mode 1: light stays dark, turns on with full blast with any sorts of motion for 30 seconds Mode 2: light stays dim, turns on with full blast with motion for 30 seconds. Then goes back to dim mode again Mode 3: light is Constantly on with 50% strength, no motion sensor When you are done installing, press the little switch (switch is under/beside the big round motion sensor) gently 1, 2 & 3 times to set your desired mode for the light. Press the switch one time to set mode 1, press 2 times for mode 2, press 3 times to set mode 3 and press 4 consecutive times to turn off the light.
