This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

full cold frame

full cold frame 065

My cold frame is more like a hot house this week - the temperature has been going up over 90*F when I forget to open the panels. The plants seem quite happy. I've moved all my seedlings into it. Its easier to have then outside so I can water with a hose.

That's a proper cold frame! I'm in awe of that. What have you covered it with? It looks more like fleece than plastic?
