Dan's Season Extension: Front Range, Colo
Just wanted to pass on a quick note on early season extension for veggies. Here is what I've got today:
Details at the original page . Under the little black hoops is our onions this year, and in the foreground is an old piece of plexi glazing that is heating the soil for peas to be planted this weekend. Back by the gate the cabbage is ready to be eaten and the spinach is jumping out of the ground.
With our tremendous sun, we have an advantage and can extend our growing seasons with a little material and planning. In fact, there's too much sun for this coldframe:

I hope this inspires someone to try it themselves.
