Cold Frame design
« on: October 29, 2008, 02:57:40 AM »
Ok, after listening to the podcast on winter gardening, it made me begin to think about planning for next years garden.  New England winters wont let me get a winter crop in but I figure a cold frame would get me going earlier.

I came across this design for a cold frame and figured I'd share it with the group.

Great resource!  Ah the northeast, I miss it and I don't.  On one hand with some row covers and some precautions I can grow year round here in Texas.  The down side is the blistering summers.  While you are still growing lettuce and spinach my ground is blistering and they either bolt or die!  It is all a trade off I guess, blueberries will do much better in the north and pecans will do much better down here.

I do miss PA at times though, for some reason though seldom in February.   ;D
