Last year Mike built me a nice cold frame that could be folded up and stored in the basement, then brought out in the spring to harden off plants. Unfortunately I seem to have completely missed cold-frame season. The rhubarb is already bolting. It’s a really cool flower isn’t it, too bad I need to go trim if off and get the plant to concentrate on roots and leaves.
I picked up these English daisies to put into the garden because Wilson’s was down to their last few pots.
Most of the seeds I started inside are still too small for the cold frame, and once they’re big enough I’m sure it’ll be warm enough to just put them straight into the garden. So I guess the cold frame will just stay in the basement this year, and I need to put something in my calendar to remind me to start my seeds earlier.
