Coldframe

The night-time temperatures have finally decided to drop down below 30, so we’re to going try extending our growing season. This weekend we cleaned the bed up a bit and built a simple bamboo frame from the remains of the tomato and pepper trellis. We covered the frame with heavy, “clear” plastic, and weighted the plastic down with brick.

This is a shot of the inside of the structure.

The temperature inside of the frame noticably increased after a few minutes. I will have to keep an eye on daytime temperatures so as not to over-heat things.

Here's how it looks from the street
