Put Your Veggies Under Wraps

A cold frame protects fall veggies from frost and, depending on its construction, offers temperatures at least a few degrees warmer than the air outside. During warm spells in the fall season or if the cold frame is sitting in the direct sun, roll up the poly film on the sides of the cold frame and attach it with tape to allow more air flow through the frame and prevent the veggies from cooking inside.

An easy-to-assemble cold frame: place four bales of straw in a rectangle and set an old window over the open area in the middle.
