Another new addition!

No, no, we aren't pregnant, so don't let that thought even cross your mind.  

I have wanted a cold frame for quite some time.  It is the logical next step on the gardening journey for me. A greenhouse would be wonderful, but the man is extremely hung up on aesthetics.  Beautiful greenhouses exist, but are not something we have the budget for at this time.  A low tunnel would be more than sufficient, but again, not aesthetically pleasing.

It was on the list last year.  You know, "the list" that is ever growing, always being shuffled as time passes and some things become a bigger priority, as money comes available (or not).  Somehow, the cold frame got shuffled to the bottom of the list.  It was looking like it was going to get shuffled again this year, but then I went on Craigslist.  Oh, how I love Craigslist!  I found a lovely 9'X4' cold frame and bought it!  We don't have to design plans around the windows we have, Brandon doesn't need to spend a weekend building it.  It is sitting in the back yard waiting for me to dig out the bed (half done as of last night).
It needs 2 of the plexiglass windows replaced... easy peasy!
Cold frame will go here next to the garden.

 I can't wait to get my spinach and lettuce moved in!
