Raised Bed Gets Cold Frame

The Elevated Cedar Raised Bed, augmented with a cold-frame top.

Another great idea from one of our customers: Rose Deskavich, who gardens in western Massachusetts, modified her Elevated Raised Bed, adding a custom cold frame so she could grow greens, parsley and chives through the winter. “During warm weather, I do not take the top off because I have a problem with squirrels digging in it. I open the cover but keep a heavy duty mesh cover over the top. The type of lettuce I grow in the winter is mache, which is a popular in Europe and grows well in winter. I highly recommend it!”

    I've done something similar but added an armature to the glazing so that the glazing top can easily go from sealed up tight to well ventilated. An example can be viewed at http://www.sagefarm.net
