As much as I have been whining about having so much to do in the garden, a person would think I wouldn’t be doing anything to extend the growing season…but I am.
Well actually my hubby is….
He designed a cold frame of sorts for me.
We have never used a cold frame or grown any type of fall garden but we decided to give it a try this year. I eat LOTS of lettuce and I’m hoping to extend the season. He built two frames like the one in the picture and covered them with a heavy weight plastic. I hope it works.
He designed them so I can easily lift off the frame to harvest. I am hoping we’ll be able to use them in the spring too.
If anyone has any advice about gardening into the fall please feel free to pass it along as I am a newbie.
