**Cold frames are a great way to extend the growing season by providing a sheltered growing area to trap heat in a garden bed.  We will be building the structures over existing beds by increasing the height of the bed frames and covering with plexiglass that can be vented.  These structures are easy to build and a great tool for growing cool season crops into the coldest weather and starting plants early in the spring.  Here’s a decent link to a blog with pictures and more information about cold frames.
