First Cold Frame

Cold Frame

This is a picture of our new cold frame partially completed. We are building 2 that are 5×12 with triple wall polycarbonate glazing on them. They will be insulated with sheet foam about a foot below ground and regular fiberglass in the walls. On the inside of the walls will be a white panel that will reflect the light without burning them. There will also be shelves along the back about half way up the wall that we will be able to put our flats of microgreens during the winter. We should be ready for planting early in the spring.
