My goal was really to have a cold frame by next winter. We had all the supplies lying around, though, and there wasn’t anything else better to do. 🙂
We used some old landscape timbers and a couple of old windows that I picked up at a thrift store a few years ago.
After Quentin cut all the landscape timbers for me, I chose a sunny part of the yard and removed all the grass.
A weed barrier was laid.
First row of landscape timbers.
And Third row of landscape timbers. Secure timbers with nails or screws as you go.
I still need to fill it with dirt and put hinges and latches on the windows. A heat lamp will be added. That will, hopefully, produce enough heat to germinate spinach seeds. Winter temps are coming soon as in it’s supposed to get down to 3º tonight.
Wish me luck!
