I recently bought Eric Coleman's "Four Season Harvest." He lives in Maine and still grows in cold frames, high tunnels, etc. all year long.
Because my fall spinach, parsley, and collards are still alive, at least, with a straw mulch, I started thinking perhaps I could have carrots, beets and lettuces with a cold frame or two in the raised beds.
The design would have to be that I could remove it myself in the spring and store, maybe stacked, in an unobtrusive place. That means the transparent top needs not only to lift, but to come off eventually. Wondering if I could cut down a heavy plastic tote and put a transparent top on? I have someone who will build for me.
Anyone have any experience with this or any ideas??
