Johnny's Cedar Cold Frame
If you're not that handy, but you still want a cold frame, this is the only one worth buying. It's
made in Maine from 1 1/4" white cedar. In other words, it's built to last and it won't blow away in the wind like some of the flimsy ones available on Amazon. They use double-walled polycarbonate glazing which is lightweight and also not prone to breaking like glass. It also has 2 open positions for the "roof" that folds away from you instead of one big panel that lifts up.
Available at Johnny's Seeds for $325.00. No, it's not cheap, but, then again, you won't be calling up to find out how to return it, either. Think of it as a mini-greenhouse and the price won't seem so high! Or, calculate how many salads you could grow in it to make your money back.
