Straw Bale Cold Frame
Though it is still technically winter, spring is just around the corner. My plan was to start some seeds early this year in a cold frame made out of leftover straw bales from last summer's garden project. Well....squash bugs invaded my garden and I destroyed the straw bales, due to any possibility of eggs with the new season.
Secret Agent Man surprised me yesterday with a few new bales and he set them out for the cold frame.
The bales cost a few dollars and the old windows were free from a friend. I have some seed trays that will be placed into the cold frame in the near future. A thermometer will be going into the cold frame this week, so I can begin to monitor the temperature.
Other ideas for cold frames can be found here and here.....and by a quick search with our friend, Google.
Anyone out there had success with this project?
