I am so excited! Today we put together a cover for my garden box to create a cold frame. It cost about $20 and was about 2 hours work. Thanks to my wonderful, strong and handy hubby.
Step one: Draw out plans
Step two: remove the mound of snow from the top of the garden box.
Step three watch my hot hubby cut the pieces of wood.
Step four: Lay out the frame.
Step five: Screw together frame and repeat for opposite side of box.
Ahhh it all fits perfectly!
Step six: Staple plastic to the frame.
It is a group effort!
This is two seperate pieces with blocks to stablize them on each end. Both sides prop up in the center for the particularly sunny days. I am hoping to have some lettuce growing in them soon!!!
Looking forward to learning how to utilize this. I also received my copy of "Square Foot Gardening" book today that I ordered. I used Mel's method last year and now I am hooked but I just finally got my own book. Also got "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" which is awesome considering I returned the copy to the library yesterday. Now I need to start studing up on how to garden in a cold frame. If anyone has any tips I would greatly appreciatet them.
