Cold Frame Protects Plants During Winter

I'm once again surprised at how well my Juwel Cold Frame has protected my seedlings. Back in October I transplanted Romaine & Black Seeded Simpson lettuce seedlings into the cold frame. After 4 months of enduring a Pennsylvania winter the lettuce still looks great. I watered the cold frame maybe three times the entire winter. I'm still surprised how well the structure insulates the greens from the freezing winter temperatures at night.

Today I took some photos of the cold frame with the 2010 October transplants. Can't wait to transplant these into my raised beds in a few weeks.
