As we could potentially still get snow and certainly frost through till June I'm hoping a cold frame will protect the seedlings and extend the growing season. We had saved several old windows and a glass door when we were remodeling, and we have plenty of scrap wood left from our numerous projects. So Chris whipped together a couple of cold frames. I just need to attach some plastic sheet to the sides of the frame and they will be like a cozy mini greenhouse for my plants. As well as a protector from deer and maybe bears?
I've planted some seeds inside and intend to start planting outside beginning of May. Its going to be an experiment and I'm optimistic/hopeful I'll get a good yield of veggies this summer!!!!!

|Chris got his DIY on and built a couple of cold frames.|
|I started digging and weeding the area where I want the cold frames to go|
|Chris worked on removing an old barbed wire fence.|
|It all got too much and he needed to take a little break with URL.|
|Helen weeding away!|
|Two little sections. The right side has been weeded and is ready for some compost.|
The left side still needs weeding. I'll move the cold frames around as needed.
