Instant Cold Frame

Inspired by other bloggers, I began a rather casual roadside search for discarded windows to use for a cold frame. Only two weeks has transpired and already I've scored this baby. A thick, double paned window that is so substantial I may be able to grow food outside in the winter.  The home owner was replacing it purely for cosmetic reasons, changing the tone of the vinyl to a gray. I felt good about recycling it for eco-friendly food production.

The window fit perfectly over an existing raised bed. Instant cold frame. 

Admiring my handiwork in my well-worn end-of-the-season slippers.
