A simple but effective solution for extending your growing season
Cherokee2 sent me a great picture of an easy, season-extending cold-frame. If we have the year we had last Winter, it could be an all-around growing frame and with a few more additions could be an all-year even if it gets cold, cold.
Right after Halloween is a great time to get free bales left over from Halloween events or yard displays. Old windows always seem to be around somewhere on the side of the road, ready for the trash collector.
I've been wanting to use a number of old sliding doors for many years, but the problem with them is weight. I can lift them, but even lifting one edge to harvest would be a challenge for Debbi and get me in trouble, so I use smaller, conventional windows.
Just thinking about this has started me thinking of all the other things I need to do outside, so I better get "crackin" while I have the energy and before the rains move in.
