Extend Your Vegetable Garden Growing Season With A Cold Frame

Growing your own organic produce at home reduces carbon in multiple ways–plants sequester carbon, and having produce in your own yard eliminates the need for food to travel, so no greenhouse gases from transportation!  To extend the growing season into the colder months, you can build a cold frame, which is basically a DIY mini greenhouse using a salvaged window, some scrap lumber, and some extra pavers or bricks. There are many free DIY plans for how to design and build cold frames online. If you use a search engine to search for “how to build a cold frame” you will find several options.
