Building a cold frame

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

One of the schools I am working with is going to build cold frames out of old windows, donated by my neighbor. These are the instructions we're starting with:

20Frame.pdf


Of course, I have to make changes. Switching decking screws for the nails, slight modifications to the frame itself to accommodate the windows. Better, bigger, more powerful power tools!

I am pondering making one using straw bales in my garden, since I'll be using a few straw bales anyway this year. Something cool from "It's a small town life" blog- and we already have the windows!


Have you made a cold frame? Pros and cons? How did it work for you?
