This year we missed out on the summers growing season because we were in an apartment. We are going to build a cold frame in hopes of being able to grow through the rest of the fall and into the winter. Come spring, we will be able to use the cold frame to start seeds and harden off little seedlings.
A cold frame is kind of like a mini greenhouse. It is low to the ground with a wooden base and a glass top. It is used to protect plants from cold weather. The glass top allows heat to get into the structure and prevents it from escaping.
