Video-Simple Cold Frames

As promised, here is a second video on winter gardening using cold frames. For those with less carpentry knowledge, these are smaller and simpler cold frames — and even better, they used recycled or discarded materials. These may not be as warm or air-tight as the ones in the previous video, so they are probably best for more moderate climates.

For those with limited or no building ability (like me!) there are also cold frame kits available on the market today, with just a little assembly required.

Winter Garden
Our winter garden is mostly garlic, onion, and lettuce. Take a look at our simple home made cold frames. They are made from pallets and windows with just a little waste vegetable oil to help the wood last.
