Cold Frame #1

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Apr 2, 2010 in Gardening

Hey Campers,

We have planted our first cold frame.  Built out of a patio door, rigid insulation and cinder blocks, the first crop will include Spinach, Baby Bok Choy, Purple Carrots, Purple Cauliflower and Red Onions.

Update 4/7 it’s alive!:

Tomorrow I will pick up a book at the library all about building cold frames, so then I can find out everything I did wrong!

Update 4/7:  Jeff Ashton says don’t use glass for your cold frame because it’s dangerous, I say too late!  Today’s outside temperature at A.S.C. 48 degrees inside the cold frame = 95 degrees!

Once again we have been a bit out of touch, but there is lots of good news to share, so stop back soon.

Peace 4 real,
