Video-Using Cold Frames for Winter Gardening

If you don’t think you can make it through the winter without at least a bit of gardening, try using cold frames to protect your plants through the cold season. You can use cold frames for anything from storing and protecting plants from the fall until spring, to planting winter vegetables such as lettuce, kale, spinach, and other yummy greens (these tend to like cooler weather anyway).

You can build small or large cold frames, depending on your space and carpentry ability. This video shows some pretty advanced cold frames, built down into the ground, which provides height as well as warmth.  (This one is keeping plants warm in the dead of winter, in Massachusetts, so it really does work!)

Check back in a few days, and we’ll share another video with examples of some simpler and smaller frames, that almost anyone could construct. (If video doesn’t appear below, please click the link to view.)
