Default Cold Frame

Plowed up part of the garden the end of September. I had wild tomatoes and cucumber plants come up. This is what they look like the middle of Nov. Had a bunch of old windows stacked around from when we replaced the windows on house 8 years ago. Had some spare 2x4 laying around. and other spare parts. Why not see how long these plants can last with just a little sweat equity and time (keeps me out of trouble). Going to build a cold frame. Part of its done hope to finish it tomorrow.

Finished up the Redneck Cold Frame. Not enough windows but I had the remains of a poly-carbonate greenhouse. I attached them to top where I did not have enough windows to cover. Then on the back wall I attached it to the inside with an opening at the bottom and the top.

On the back (Northside) I attached some foil covered bubble wrap. The idea is the cool air will go in the bottom and hot air will come out the top.
