Small weekend garden project; building a cold frame! Typically I get seeds started indoors under a grow light, but as the garden has grown in size I've run out of room for starts. This should free up a lot of space (or give me an excuse to expand the garden further).

@rho that’s nice! Very mild winter here in North Texas. Itching to sow some things in the raised beds with the kids. Of course that then guarantees it’ll be frosty 🥶 , and we don’t really drink soda now to make mini cloches out of plastic bottles.

@dctrud Similar situation down here in central Texas. This should be enough to keep the odd frost off seedlings through February and March.
