DIY Cold Frames For Your Garden

If you would like to have at least some fresh homegrown produce year round, you should build some of the diy cold frames and then you can at least grow greens even through the winter.
Gardening has become a very popular activity these days with more and more people wanting to grow their own vegetables and herbs to feed their families. However, with the majority of the country subject to harsh weather conditions in the winter months it can be difficult to grow vegetables year round. This article was designed to introduce the reader to a simple solution for this and it involves using Cold Frames. I like the way these are built pretty much just like raised beds but with lids on.
