Making a Cold Frame

 N. and I recently made a cold frame for growing seedlings out of old windows that I bought at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $25 total. N. did a lot of the work himself using a manual drill and screwdriver.  Since Tim and I have almost no carpentry-type skills, I was quite proud of N. and myself for putting this together!

We filled the finished structure with little newspaper pots and so far have planted two types of basil and sunflowers.  Grow, little seeds!

very impressive! I love the newspaper pots idea. I'll have to tell Boppa about that.
