Season Extension Cold Frames

Leaf walls covered with Reemay Row Cover and plastic sheeting. This bed is approximately 25’ x 12’. Insulated wall made of used chicken wire stuffed with leaves. Yummy Dwarf Siberian Kale, Fennel, and Fava beans and Parsley are happy inside. Our greens were happy right through the stretch of 15 below weather we had last winter. This design grew from our desire to keep our costs down. We had chicken wire, we had plenty of leaves. If we had used strawbales, winterizing this bed would have cost $200. This way, it cost nothing.
