Rainy days and Sundays always get me down when I can not garden!

Constructing a COLD FRAME

My neighbor was getting rid of some 4x4x8 post which I gladly accepted.  I drilled 5/8"  holes every 2 feet along the length of both post.  Next, I inserted 1/2"x4 feet rebar into the drilled holes.  Using a sledge hammer, I pounded the rebar into the ground for several inches.  I then took 5/8" pvc piping and inserted the ends over the rebar. Using 4 mi plastic, cut it to fit over the frame.  To hold the plastic to the frame, I used large binder clips.  Once the cold frame was completed, I planted Peppers and Eggplant that I had started weeks early in the house.
