Use Cold Frames to Beat the Cold

Jason over at True Food Solutions has a great post I thought I’d share about building a simple cold frame garden box to keep your garden active even through the cold winter months.

I had a bed of lettuce still growing – volunteers from my harvesting of seeds from the spring crop – and I didn’t want to let it die when we could have fresh salad through the winter.  So I grabbed two of the storm window panes I had picked up in a batch from someone on Craigslist, took measurements, and built a cold frame to fit the window dimensions.

A cold frame is a simple and inexpensive way to enjoy fresh vegetables without having a full greenhouse.
