Concealed beneath this thick piece of plastic is a large wooden planter supported by tomato wire frames and is held together by clothespins. Ugly as it is, this has extended the growing season by a month or more. We are experiencing warmer than usual temperatures. Even so it has been dipping below zero every evening (average -5C).
Look how happy the radishes and lettuce are. Downright cozy.
This was definitely a success. Will have to get the B man to build me a respectable cold frame next year. Another project he doesn't know about.
