For those of you who don’t know, a cold frame is like a mini greenhouse and is used for hardening off plants in the spring, and holding plants over winter. It is a long, low “box” with sides of either brick or wood and a removable “roof” usually made of windows. The back of the box is higher then the front and faces South so that it can catch the Winter sun.
It was late May, 2007. We had been working at the Klaty’s Goat farm for a couple weeks, and one afternoon on the way home, stopped in at Spratt Farms to inquire about their “Brown Eggs” sign.
The mortar has to be mixed “just so,”
The next day, after a quick run to Home Depot for another load of mortar, Dad, Josh and I finished laying the walls, and I angled the ends so the windows would lay flush.
And finally I had a cold frame! What a blessing from the Lord! I could hardly wait until spring to try it out!
