Our garden experiment this year involves starting plants in a cold frame. Previous years we've tried planting seeds and starting them, with minimal success, inside in the windowsill.
This year, Logan constructed a wood and plexiglass cold frame. The cold frame sits under the deck, on the south side of the house. It is designed to capture heat, much like a mini-greenhouse.
Libby started a variety of seeds in her cold frame. In a couple of months, when the temperature outside is warmer, she plans to transplant the young plants to our garden.
