Cold Frame Planting

We have had strawberries and broccoli transplanted since late fall but have added lots of cuttings for spring transplanting. We have also planted spinach for spring  greens in this space.  Have added another section as well and planted lettuce, spinach, beets, and peas to add to our green’s for salads. We also cook a lot of the greens. We are going to continue to add and experiment with lots of other greens and some other plants for raised beds and cold frames.  I am going to add light and heat to the tall cold frame. We are going to market the frames in several different sizes and styles. The one I have pictured below is about $900.00 set up and ready to plant or I will also plant. This is set up on a level accessible area, and does not include mileage charges. If this is something that interest you please contact me, I may be able to help you design something that will work for you and provide some of the materials and design for DIY projects.  Thank You for viewing my site and  hope you enjoyed what you read and viewed.
